Poromechanics Committee

Purpose:

The mission of the Poromechanics committee is to:

I. Promote fundamental and applied research in the mechanics of porous materials using experimental, analytical, and computational techniques and including materials from naturally made (rock, soil, bone, etc.) to man-made (concrete, ceramics, foams, etc.);


II. Provide a supportive and inclusive network for the researchers and engineers in the field of poromechanics at any stage in their career and with diverse backgrounds;


III. Disseminate latest research in poromechanics and its essential ideas in the form of workshops, conferences, symposia and dedicated student poster session at the EMI.
