Nell’ambito del Symposium on Energy Geotechnics (SEG23, sotto gli auspici del TC308 dell’ISSMGE), si terrà il Mini-Symposium “Multiphysics and multiscale interactions in the context of energy storage and CO2 sequestration”, di cui segue una breve descrizione. Si invitano tutti gli interessati a sottomettere un abstract entro il 31 gennaio 2023.
Short description: Geomechanics plays an important role in many applications required to engineer the energy transition. Massive storage of energy and CO2 is planned to be done in geological structures, that will be exposed to unexperienced types of loads. Among those: cyclic pore pressure histories due to seasonal storage/production of energy, thermal loads due to the injection of fluids with different temperatures, bio-chemo-hydro-mechanical processes due to the interaction of dissolved and solid chemical species with low pH fluids, and wetting/drying processes. This mini-symposium aims at bringing together researchers working to foster a deeper understanding of such coupled multiphysics phenomena, which often require a multiscale approach (from particle to the REV, and from the REV to the well or the reservoir scale).
