Effective Properties of Geomaterials: Rocks and Porous Media
Volume: 285
Series: A26
This comprehensive survey consists of two parts. In Part I we present the available results concerning the effective properties of cracked materials, mainly rocks. The second part of the paper deals with the transport and effective properties of porous materials in the case of a rigid and deformable skeleton. The whole paper is oriented towards applications in geophysics and geomechanics. Thus, much attention has been devoted to twophased media, which model the upper crust of the Earth. Such media may be either isotropic or anisotropic cracked elastic bodies, though their behaviour can also exhibit inelastic features. Porous media may be dry, saturated or partially saturated. Onephase and multiphase flows through porous media have been considered.
