COUPLED THERMO-HYDRO-MECHANICAL-CHEMICAL PROCESSES IN GEO SYSTEMS

Ove Stephansson, John Hudson, Lanru Jing

ISBN 008044525X
Pages 852

Description
Among the most important and exciting current steps forward in geo-engineering is the development of coupled numerical models. They represent the basic physics of geo-engineering processes which can include the effects of heat, water, mechanics and chemistry. Such models provide an integrating focus for the wide range of geo-engineering disciplines.

The articles within this volume were originally presented at the inaugural GeoProc conference held in Stockholm and contain a collection of unusually high quality information not available elsewhere in an edited and coherent form. This collection not only benefits from the latest theoretical developments but also applies them to a number of practical and wide ranging applications. Examples include the environmental issues around radioactive waste disposal deep in rock, and the search for new reserves of oil and gas.

Contents
Fundamentals; radioactive waste disposal; oil/gas reservoir engineering; geothermal energy engineering; geological systems; geotechnical & environmental engineering. For the Geo-Engineering series (ed Hudson) as volume 2.
