Abstract

The main objective of the course was to provide the participants with fundamental knowledge in the field of modelling of coupled physical phenomena in saturated porous materials. The problems of upscaling, continual description of flow and transport, and coupled poroelastic processesin saturaetd porous media have been discussed. In addition experimental methods useful in studies of basic structural and mechanical properties of porous materials were introduced and presented. The course was dedicated to Ph.D. students and young researchers working in different areas of applications of models of porous media including biomechanics, civil and environmental engineering, earth science, engineering of materials, etc.
