Chloé Arson

Brief Biography: 

I am a theoretical and numerical expert in damage and healing rock mechanics, thermo-chemo-poromechanics, and underground storage. My group designs and formulates models that link microscopic damage and healing processes to macroscopic rock behavior. For example, we explain how salt grain sliding mechanisms can result in crack propagation and how diffusive mass transfer at grain interfaces can actually heal these cracks. We study crack propagation at multiple scales, in shale for instance, and how crack patterns affect rock strength, stiffness and permeability. We also use principles of micro-mechanics and thermodynamics to understand fragmentation processes in granular assemblies - ballast for example. Recently, I got involved in the NSF-funded Engineering Research Center for Bio-mediated and
