Hydraulic fracturing

- Initiation of hydraulic fracture (size-effects, fluid effects etc.) - Initiation and simultaneous propagation of multiple hydraulic fractures - Validation and codes benchmarking

Suspension flow

- Flow of dense suspensions in the dense regime in confined geometries (pipe, fractures) - Sedimentation in confined geometries

Inverse Problems in geomechanics

- Reconstruction of 3D in-situ stress field from quantitative and qualitative data - Use of InSAR data for reservoir monitoring
