Advances in Subsurface Mechanics for
Energy and Environment (ASMEE) – 2021

The Center of Excellence on Subsurface Mechanics and Geo-Energy at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras is delighted to present a summer webinar series titled Advances in Subsurface Mechanics for Energy and Environment – 2021 (ASMEE – 2021). The webinar series will be held on Fridays in the months of July – September 2021.

The webinars will host leading researchers from academia and industry to discuss pioneering research in the broad area of subsurface mechanics. The choice of topics is diverse and is expected to include experimental and computational geomechanics, multiphase flow and reactive transport modeling, subsurface characterisation, geochemistry, and their applications in oil & gas and geothermal energy industries.

The talks are open to all; however, registration is mandatory. Details of each presentation will be sent one week prior to all registered participants.
