The coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical (THMC) processes play a significant role in the characteristics of deep underground reservoirs, such as coal mines, CO2 sequestration, enhanced oil recovery, and geothermal energy development. In recent years, many methods, including laboratory experiments, theoretical analysis and numerical simulations, have been employed to investigate the THMC processes of deep underground reservoirs. However, due to the complex and uncertain properties of rocks/coals in deep underground reservoirs, in-depth explanations of the THMC processes are still needed.
This Special Issue aims to present recent advances in THMC processes of deep underground reservoirs. We invite you to submit comprehensive review papers and original articles.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Fluid flow and solute transport in porous media
- Nonlinear flow regimes in fractured rock masses
- Shear-flow processes in fractures
- Mechanical-chemical processes in coals/rocks
- Three-dimensional fracture network reconstruction and permeability estimation
- Stability control of deep coal mine
- Fractal approach to study fracture size distribution
- Thermal treatment on dynamic and physical properties of coal/rock

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
