Applications of continuum mechanics and thermodynamics in geosciences, especially
- multi-component systems with mass exchange (adsorption) and diffusion,
- acoustic and surface waves in poroelastic media,
- modeling and numerical analysis of wave propagation in partially saturated soils
- transport of pollutants in soils
- numerical investigation of the propagation of sound and vibrations
- mathematical investigation of the capillary pressure in soils including hysteresis
- chemical reactions in porous media
- infiltration and capillary rise in soils
