Technical contributions contained in this volume characterize continuity of science, engineering and modeling regarding the mechanical behavior of salt. These papers evidence relationships from microscopic dislocation structure to modeling applications over kilometer dimensions, a reach of more than ten orders of magnitude. The book is arranged along a similar appreciation for scale, beginning with laboratory investigations and building upward to engineering applications and formation-scale modeling. This edition is subdivided into the following topical areas:
• Laboratory testing
• Field applications
• Barriers
• Solution caverns
• Constitutive models
• Modeling and simulation

The volume includes 44 quality papers, each receiving at least two independent technical reviews. The interrelationships of research and application advance experimental techniques, better define physical processes, and improve modeling. Multiplied by bourgeoning computational power, the science of the mechanical behavior of salt contributes to increased safety, efficiency, and economy.

Mechanical Behavior of Salt VIII appeals to a broad and durable transnational community involved with salt research and practice. This volume provides perspectives and tools for today’s challenges of design, analysis, and performance considerations.
