Abstract

Water flow in a single fracture with variable aperture was studied by means of numerical modeling. For this purpose, two numerical models were developed. Computer simulations of water flow rates, fracture contact areas and transmissivities for fractal and nonfractal fractures were performed. Water flow rates were approximated by a trend function. The effect of the grid size upon the stability of results as well as the dependence of the fracture transmissivity on rate of contact area were studied. The achieved results were compared with measured data.
