Description: In recent years the scientific community has seen a remarkable surge of interest in the properties and behavior of clays as they apply to a variety of natural and engineered settings. Clays and clayey rocks are key elements in important subsurface energy-related applications, including the long-term disposal of nuclear wastes in geological repositories, the storage of CO2 in subsurface geological formations, and the extraction of energy resources from clay-rich formations (e.g., shale gas). While clay materials offer some striking benefits in these and other applications, their properties and behavior under relevant conditions remain only partly understood. In fact, engineered clay barriers and clay-rocks show a remarkable array of macro-scale properties such as high swelling pressure, very low permeability, semi-permeable membrane properties, and a strong coupling between geochemical, mechanical, and osmotic properties. In this session, we welcome submission of abstracts on experimental, theoretical, and numerical investigations of coupled THMC processes across scales in clay-rich media.
