Contributions to micromechanical modelling of transport and freezing phenomena within unsaturated porous media

Abstract : Micromechanical approach is employed to investigate the transport and freezing within unsaturated porous media. In unsaturated porous media, water film as well as disjoining pressure are introduced in the transport and freezing problems. In the modeling, it is found that, capillary layer along with pore water dominate the transport at high saturation degree (Sr>10%). However, water film will play a significant role in transport at low saturation degree (Sr<10%), and the diffusion coefficient will be lower than 3 to 4 orders of magnitude than that at higher saturation degree. A micromechanical model of freezing in unsaturated porous media is established. Micromechanical model of freezing is more physical based in nature. That is because different from poromechanical model of freezing media in which ice crystal pressure is introduced, the disjoining pressure of unfrozen water film instead of ice crystal pressure is introduced in the micromechanical model of freezing
