Porous medias are omnipresent in many industrial and natural processes, and there is an important need of understanding and predicting the multiscale flow and transport phenomena. Specific challenges in refractories (but not only) concern modelling difficulties such as coupling with multiphase, thermal, and mechanical processes. Many classical methods based on solving partial differential equations have been used for many years, but face limitations related to numerical aspects. To avoid those numerical aspects, other authors use the probabilistic methods such as gradient percolation approaches.
The proposed minisymposium is meant to provide an opportunity to exchange on the methods used to treat analysis related to the modelling of reactive transport in porous media coupled with different physiques such as thermal, mechanics, and so on. Dialogue between experts in numerical simulation techniques and industrial applications communities should be profitable for the understanding of complex coupled simulations and the emergence of their application in the industrial field.
With these aims in mind, topics of applications will focus on porous media such as geosciences, composites, ceramics and refractories, etc...
