MSc Thesis Presentation by Zhen Fang on December 5th


Construction of 3D discrete fracture network (DFN) model in a fractured crystalline rock

developed model using FracMan Copyright: LIH

The research area is located at the Grimsel Test Site (GTS) in the Swiss Alps and the thesis aims to build a Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) Model consisting of deterministic shear zones and stochastically generated fractures. The software FracMan was used for accomplishing this model based on the data from optical televiewer (OPTV) images and in-situ hydraulic packer tests. The geometric distribution of fractures, the hydraulic conduction of fractures and hydraulic connectivity between different intervals can be displayed in this simulated model.

The presentation is held on December 5th at 4:15 pm in room 217 LIH.
