Specific topics include the mechanics of fault distribution and localization in high-porosity sands of Provence, France; strain localization in geomaterials; the progression from damage to localization of displacement observed in laboratory testing of porous rocks; microscale damage evolution in compacting sandstone; influence of grain size and geothermal gradient on the ductile-to-brittle transition in arenaceous sedimentary rocks; fracture aperture, length, and pattern geometry development under biaxial loading; and improved seismic identification of inter-fault damage via a linked geomechanics-seismic approach.
