dc.description.abstractFully coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) modeling has been widely studied in various areas of geomechanics, owing to the multiphase nature of geomaterials. Several researches have dealt with THM coupled modeling of geomaterials in high temperature regimes, but a limited work is available for geomaterials in low temperature regimes. A review and summary of existing work in the literature on THM coupled modeling of frozen soils is presented here. THM coupled modeling in general and its applications are pointed out. The basic governing equations of a coupled THM model in general form, namely mass, momentum and energy balance equations, are discussed. A review of fully coupled models is made and the numerical aspects of THM modeling are briefly discussed. A mechanical constitutive model makes up an important component of a fully coupled THM model and a brief review of existing constitutive models for frozen soils is presented. The models reviewed range from elastoplastic models to viscoplastic or creep and damage coupled models. Some models that consider different approaches from the plasticity framework are briefly reviewed. The state-of-the-art is summarized by pointing out the main aspects of THM coupled modeling and directions for future work.
