Abstract

The three-dimensional numerical modelling is being increasingly used to study flow and transport in fractured rocks. Beginning with a geometric model, strategies are discussed for representing intersecting fractures in a finite-element grid. These strategies are applied to two examples to illustrate their potential and the problems that arise for numerical simulation of flow and transport within complex, three-dimensional spaces.
