Lattice Boltzmann simulation of fluid flow in fracture networks with rough, self -affine surfaces

Madadi, Mahyar; Sahimi, Muhammad


Using the lattice Boltzmann method, we study fluid flow in a two-dimensional (2D) model of fracture network of rock. Each fracture in a square network is represented by a 2D channel with rough, self-affine internal surfaces. Various parameters of the model, such as the connectivity and the apertures of the fractures, the roughness profile of their surface, as well as the Reynolds number for flow of the fluid, are systematically varied in order to assess their effect on the effective...[Show more]
