Physics of drying conference, Nov. 5-7, 2018

Drying is ubiquitous in industry and our everyday life. It is a priori a complex process involving coupled vapor diffusion and liquid transport through a complex, multi-scale, soft or solid, porous structure. Despite thiscomplexity, many recent researches now provide insight in, and rationalization of, the physical processes at work in drying of soils, building materials, colloids, gels, model porous systems, etc. The aim of this meeting, within the frame of the Chair Innovating solutions for sustainable housing (Saint – Gobain – Ecole des Ponts), is to gather experts and review significant improvements in our understanding in this scientific field.
