Modeling Fluid-Driven Fracture — at the Crossroads of Applied Mathematics, Earth Science, and Earth Resources Engineering
06 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Fluid-driven crack propagation is the process by which pressurized fluid drives cracks through solid materials. Such a process is not only central to hydraulic fracture stimulation of oil and gas wells, but also it describes movement of molten rock through the Earth’s crust and water through the subsurface of glacial ice sheets. Hence, there is significant, and hitherto relatively untapped, potential for multidisciplinary investigation. Furthermore, the underlying mathematical problem is challenging even for simple propagation geometries and ignoring variability in material properties of the rock and/or ice sheet. When realistic variability and complexity is considered, the problem exceeds the capabilities of current computer simulation tools. To address these concerns, the objective of this workshop is to convene a BIRS Workshop of Applied Mathematicians, Geo-Scientists, and Engineers from Academia and Industry to accelerate the development of the state-of-the-art tools to analyze the evolution of fluid-driven cracks that propagate in complex solid media.

CGS — The Canadian Geotechnical Society's Annual Conference - GeoNiagara 2021
26 Sep 2021 - 29 Sep 2021 • Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
Canadian Geotechnical Society
The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) in collaboration with the Canadian National Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CNC) invite you to GeoNiagara 2021, the 74th Canadian Geotechnical Conference and the 14th Joint CGS/IAH-CNC Groundwater Conference. The conference will be held at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, ON, Canada from Sunday, September 26 to Wednesday, September 29, 2021. The theme for GeoNiagara 2021 is Creating a Sustainable and Smart Future. The conference will feature technical sessions on subjects of broad interest in the geotechnical and hydrogeological fields. In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, the conference will include a complement of distinguished keynote speakers, high calibre short courses, technical tours, and social events.
