Geomaterials, such as soil, rock, and concrete, consisted of constituents characterized by multiple length scales. Response of these constituents determines the macroscopic performance of geomaterials and related structures while inevitably subjected to multifield effects such as mechanical loading, temperature and moisture changes, and chemical reactions. Furthermore, these effects can even lead to micro- and macro-cracking, addressing the need of the discontinuum analysis, apart from the continuum analysis. This symposium is intended to provide a forum for researchers to present recent advances in geomechanics involving the aforementioned multiscale, multifield, and continuum-discontinuum analyses.
Topics within the scope of interests include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:
(1) Multiscale modeling of geomaterials and related structures (concurrent and hierarchical coupling, domain decomposition, discrete-continuum coupling);
(2) Advanced computing and simulation methods (hybrid physics and data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data-driven computational geomechanics, automation, probabilistic and statistical approaches, wavelet signal processing);
(3) Continuum and discontinuum modeling of soils, rocks, and concretes;
(4) Advanced numerical methods or algorithms in soil-structure interactions;
(5) Multiphysics couplings between mechanical, hydraulic, thermal processes, and chemical kinetics;
(6) Large-scale modeling and high-performance computing of geomaterials and underground structures.
Cross-disciplinary contributions are particularly welcomed.
