MMMS@DISG Percolation and absorption in a (soft) porous matrix
In a joint paper with Paolo Podio Guidugli, Salah Naili and Vittorio Sansalone, I recently finalised an extended poroelastic theory apt to describe fluid trafficking between the channelling pores and the surrounding matrix. This talk is meant to bring the underlying ideas to the attention of the local community of soft-matter mechanicians. While the softness of the matrix does not play an essential role in our theory, we expect some of the effects it covers to be more dramatic if the solid skeleton is soft.
