This paper presents a computational framework for modelling hydraulic fracture on the basis of combining continuum porous media and damage theories. By considering the continuum as two separate domains of damaged and intact porous domains, model comp...

A fresh view on the hard/soft law divide: implications for international insolvency of enterprise groups (2019)
Journal Article
Mevorach, I. (2019). A fresh view on the hard/soft law divide: implications for international insolvency of enterprise groups. Michigan Journal of International Law, 40(3), 505-530

It is the orthodox belief that treaties and—within the EU—directly applicable regulations represent hard, binding international law, while other international instruments-including model laws-are forms of soft law. In a previous publication 2 I discu... Read More about A fresh view on the hard/soft law divide: implications for international insolvency of enterprise groups.
