Poromechanics is the mechanics of porous fabrics and is now a good demonstrated box in lots of engineering disciplines, starting from Civil Engineering, Geophysics, Petroleum Engineering to Bioengineering. despite the fact that, a rigorous method that hyperlinks the physics of the phenomena at stake in porous fabrics and the macroscopic behaviour continues to be lacking. This ebook provides such an method through homogenization suggestions. carefully based in quite a few theories of micromechanics, those up scaling innovations are constructed for the homogenization of delivery homes, stiffness and energy houses of porous materials.

The unique function of this e-book is the stability among idea and alertness, supplying the reader with a finished advent to cutting-edge homogenization theories and functions to a wide range of actual lifestyles porous fabrics: concrete, rocks, shales, bones, etc.
