Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Hexahedral grid generation methods intended for simulations of pollutant transport and geo-thermal processes in fractured porous media are described. The case when the solution structure is virtually entirely determined by flows in the fracture system and the case of joint simulation of flows in the fracture system and the rock matrix arc analyzed separately.
