Mehdi Eskandari-Ghadi, Ph.D.

Curriculum Vitae

ResearchGate, ORCID

My research has been focused on the effect of interfacial forces on the adsorption-deformation of porous material and crack propagation. I am interested in research on multiphysical phenomena (such as adsorption, confined fluid transport, and dissolution) in relation to solid mechanics.
