Mohammad Ali Aghighi
Adel research area is focused on constitutive modelling of coal and its relation to acoustic measurements. She is experienced in theoretical development of constitutive models and has extensive skills in mechanical and ultrasonic measurements of rocks.
Mohammad research focuses on hydration induced stress/strain in shales due to hydraulic fracturing fluid uptake due to multiphysical forces. His study covers a wide range of novel theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations to assess the interactions between shale and fracturing fluids.
Asad research focuses on the effects of multiphysical forces on the frictional properties of fractures in sedimentary rocks. His work specifically includes the effect of mechanical shearing on reactive fluid flow in the fractures.
Xiao research interest centres on application of imaging techniques to identify the role of compaction bands on permeability evolution of porous rocks. He is skilled in pore scale numerical simulation of coupled fluid flow-geomechanics.
Muath research focuses on THMC theoretical and experimental modelling of organic rich shales by sorbing gases. He is skilled in petrophsyical measurements of organic rich shales and has extensive experience in experimental investigation of organic rich shales.
Mobarakeh research focuses on characterization of rock and coal mechanical properties. She investigates the application of Data Science and Big Data analysis to extract relationship between rock mechanical properties and geophysical data.
Linan research interest centers on gas adsorption and desorption induced mechanical properties changes in coal. His study includes theoretical, experimental and numerical development to evaluate the poromechanical response of coal saturated with a sorbing fluid phase.
