IUTAM Symposium on Theoretical and Numerical Methods in Continuum Mechanics of Porous Materials, held at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, September 5-10, 1999

During the last decades, continuum mechanics of porous materials has achieved great attention, since it allows for the consideration of the volumetrically coupled behaviour of the solid matrix deformation and the pore-fluid flow. Naturally, applications of porous media models range from civil and environmental engineering, where, e. g. , geote- nical problems like the consolidation problem are of great interest, via mechanical engineering, where, e. g. , the description of sinter materials or polymeric and metallic foams is a typical problem, to chemical and biomechanical engineering, where, e. g. , the complex structure of l- ing tissues is studied. Although these applications are principally very different, they basically fall into the category of multiphase materials, which can be described, on the macroscale, within the framework of the well-founded Theory of Porous Media (TPM). With the increasing power of computer hardware together with the rapidly decreasing computational costs, numerical solutions of complex coupled problems became possible and have been seriously investigated. However, since the quality of the numerical solutions strongly depends on the quality of the underlying physical model together with the experimental and mathematical possibilities to successfully determine realistic material parameters, a successful treatment of porous materials requires a joint consideration of continuum mechanics, experimental mechanics and numerical methods. In addition, micromechanical - vestigations and homogenization techniques are very helpful to increase the phenomenological understanding of such media.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Ehlers studierte Bauingenieurwesen an der Universität Hannover, promovierte und habilitierte an der Universität Essen und war 1991-95 Professor für Mechanik an der TU Darmstadt. Seit 1995 ist er Professor für Technische Mechanik an der Universität Stuttgart. Seine Arbeitsgebiete umfassen die Kontinuumsmechanik, die Materialtheorie, die Experimentelle und die Numerische Mechanik. Dabei ist er insbesondere an der Modellierung mehrphasiger Materialen bei Anwendungen im Bereich der Geomechanik und der Biomechanik interessiert.


This volume presents the Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium on 'Theoretical and Numerical Methods in Continuum Mechanics of Porous Materials' held at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, September 5-10, 1999. It contains 57 articles showing the state of the art in the field of porous media research. The goal of the Symposium was to bring together the scientific results of leading experts in the field. Thus, the volume provides the whole range of modelling empty, partially saturated and fully saturated porous materials, such as soil, concrete, sinter materials, metallic and polymeric foams, glacier and rock ice, living tissues, etc. In addition to the macroscopic continuum mechanical view of porous materials and the numerical computations of fully coupled solid-fluid problems, micro-to-macro homogenization strategies are presented and material parameters are compared to experimental data to optimize the geometrically linear and finite approaches for the description of the elastic, viscous and plastic properties of the solid matrix and the viscous properties of the pore-fluids. In addition to these general topics, several contributions are included concerning the fields of wave propagation, localization phenomena, Biot's approach to porous media, fracture and damage, swelling, drying and shrinkage, as well as composite materials. Like a state-of-the-art volume, this book allows researchers and engineers to get an excellent overview of the theoretical and numerical description of porous materials, including various applications to practical engineering problems.
