:The purpose of this research project is to investigate '''chemical and mechanical processes in porous media subjected to reactive transport'''. The project will employ small scale flow experiments, X-ray microtomographic imaging, carbonate geochemistry, and classical geomechanical deformation tests to quantify the simultaneous evolution of chemical and structural attributes (e.g., pore size, particle size, mineral constituents, etc.) during reactive flow and/or loading. The experimental activities will be conducted at the Northwestern University and at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), located at the Argonne National Laboratory. The main goal of the project is to relate temporal and spatial changes in microstructural attributes to chemical and physical macroscopic quantities (e.g., permeability, stiffness, strength, precipitation/dissolution etc.).
