The minisymposium will be devoted to development of mathematical models, numerical methods, algorithms, and software for engineering strength analysis in nonlinear problems of geomechanics, engineering geology, and petrophysics.

Topics to be addressed include (but are not limited to):

- Numerical modeling of thermodynamical processes that take place during oil and gas borehole drilling, building and use of mine workings and other underground structures. additive manufacturing at different scale levels;

- Effective mechanical and thermophysical material properties of rocks with account for presence and origination of cracks;

- Stability of boreholes and mines;

- Numerical and analytical models of damage accumulation, crack initiation and growth in rocks;

- Geoacoustical methods for mineral exploration;

- Verification and validation of software for the modeling of rock deformation processes, exact and approximate analytical solutions within the scope of solid body mechanics;

- Industrial monitoring of boreholes, mines, and other underground structures;

- Modern numerical methods for nonlinear problems of geomechanics, engineering geology, and petrophysics;

- Parallel computations for nonlinear problems of geomechanics, engineering geology, and petrophysics, including implementation on supercomputers.
