By Pierre M. Adler
This publication offers a scientific remedy of the geometrical and shipping houses of fractures, fracture networks, and fractured porous media.
It is split into significant components. the 1st half bargains with geometry of person fractures and of fracture networks. using the dimensionless density rationalizes the implications for the percolation threshold of the networks. It provides the the most important benefit of grouping the numerical info for varied fracture shapes.
The moment half bargains regularly with permeability below regular stipulations of fractures, fracture networks, and fractured porous media. back the implications for numerous forms of networks could be rationalized through the dimensionless density. A bankruptcy is devoted to 2 section stream in fractured porous media.
