This e-book offers a brand new suite of benchmarks for and examples of porous media mechanics gathered during the last years. It keeps the meeting of benchmarks and examples for porous media mechanics released in 2014. The publication covers numerous purposes within the geosciences, geotechnics, geothermal power, and geological waste deposition. The research of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) strategies is vital to many purposes in environmental engineering, comparable to geological waste deposition, geothermal power utilisation, carbon trap and garage, water assets administration, hydrology, or even weather change. In order to evaluate the feasibility and security of geotechnical purposes, process-based modelling is the one instrument which may successfully quantify destiny eventualities, a truth which additionally creates an immense burden of accountability in regards to the reliability of computational instruments. The publication exhibits that benchmarking bargains an appropriate technique for verifying the standard of modelling instruments according to most sensible practices, and including code comparability fosters neighborhood efforts. It additionally  offers a quick introduction to the DECOVALEX, SeSBench and MOMAS initiatives. This benchmark publication is a part of the OpenGeoSys initiative – an open resource venture designed to proportion wisdom and event in environmental research and medical computation.
