Geomechanical Behavior of Shales

The paper presents the recent advances and their relevance in the study of the geomechanical behavior of shales considering both experimental and modelling aspects. Shales are involved in several energy-related engineering applications where complex multiphysical conditions are encountered. Partial saturation, non-isothermal conditions, plasticity and damage mechanisms may have a fundamental impact on their geomechanical behavior. The relevance of these aspects for shales is presented in the paper both from advance experimental and modeling point of view.
