      Coupled flows arise, for instance, in groundwater flow, where chemical contaminants leak in rivers or lakes and reach the porous rock at the bottom. The mathematical model is a domain-based coupled system of Stokes equations with Darcy’s law describing the rate at which a fluid flows through a permeable medium.   Permeability INTRODUCTION The permeability of a rock is a measure of its capacity for transmitting a fluid. The coefficient of permeability (or hydraulic conductivity) is defined as the discharge velocity through a unit area under a unit hydraulic gradient and is dependent upon the properties of the medium, as well as the viscosity and density of the fluid.

    Within the vadose zone, the gas phase is continuous and mobile, and the aqueous phase is the secondary, discontinuous, and potentially immobile wetting fluid. In these situations, the gas fluid phase flows through the fractured rock according to the same hydraulic principles as groundwater. Energy gradients and resistance to flow (such as. Scientific understanding of fluid flow in rock fractures--a process underlying contemporary earth science problems from the search for petroleum to the controversy over nuclear waste storage--has grown significantly in the past 20 years.

    Book Description. Rocks and soils can behave as discontinuous materials, both physically and mechanically, and for such discontinuous nature and behaviour there remain challenges in numerical modelling methods and techniques. Coupling fluid flow with discontinuous deformation analysis, Y.X. Ben, J. Xue, Q.H. Miao & Y. Wang Numerical. The nature of fluid flow within host rocks provides the essential backdrop to fault-related fluid flow and the formation of associated mineral deposits. From a flow perspective, however, it is useful to make a clear distinction between the two most common end-member host-rock sequences within basins: siliciclastic rocks and carbonates.

This is the first book to consider rock discontinuity systems and individual discontinuities as the controlling factors determining fluid flow through rocks.

It develops simple usable fracture flow models based on an understanding of discontinuity structure and the mechanics of rock and discontinuity deformation. Category: Nature. Focusing on simplified models of physical flow processes, this book develops a series of quantitative models to describe the recovery of oil and gas from hydrocarbon reservoirs (including fracking), the physics of geo-sequestration of CO2, geothermal power production, and the potential for underground contaminant dispersal in the long-term storage of nuclear waste.

[1] A discrete fracture model for the flow of compressible, multicomponent fluids in homogeneous, heterogeneous, and fractured media is presented in single phase.

In the numerical model we combine the mixed finite element (MFE) and the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. We use the cross‐flow equilibrium concept to approximate the fractured matrix mass transfer.

Small-scale fluid motions, such as capillary instability, breakup of liquid sheets, and bubbly water can all be successfully animated. Discover the world's research 17+ million members. Fluid flow in discontinuous rocks.

To provide a set of governing equations for solving the coupled stress and fluid flow, a rock mass, which commonly contains a large number of geological discontinuities, is treated as an anisotropic, elastic porous medium with the corresponding elastic compliance and permeability tensors, hydro‐mechanical equivalents to the discontinuous mass.

Description: Reservoir Rock Properties and Fluid Flow covers properties of natural rocks and fluids that are important in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering. In this book major emphasis is placed on fluid storage in reservoir rocks and in.

In this paper, the two computer codes TOUGH2 and RDCA (for "rock discontinuous cellular automaton") are integrated for coupled hydromechanical analysis of multiphase fluid flow and discontinuous mechanical behavior in heterogeneous rock.

TOUGH2 is a well-established code for geohydrological analysis involving multiphase, multicomponent fluid flow and heat transport; RDCA. A tool for determining the hydraulic conductivity, flow direction and flow rate in discontinuous rock mass is presented using heat for tracing these processes.

The book is organized into three parts. Part 1 discusses the classification of reservoirs and reservoir fluids. Part 2 explains different rock properties, including porosity. The phenomena of fluid flow in fractured rock is dominated by the fact that is not all parts of the domain are in hydraulic communication.

In theory, it is possible to determine connectivity and permeability from stochastic parameters that describe the fracture geometry. Rock Fractures and Fluid Flow: Practical Problems F ractures are mechanical breaks in rocks; they originate from strains that arise from stress concentrations around flaws, heterogeneities, and physical discontinuities.

They form in response to lithostatic, tectonic. L. Jing, Y. Ma, Z.
