Karst aquifer evolution in fractured, porous rocks

Kaufmann, G; Braun, Jean

Description

The evolution of flow in a fractured, porous karst aquifer is studied by means of the finite element method on a two-dimensional mesh of irregularly spaced nodal points. Flow within the karst aquifer is driven by surface recharge from the entire region, simulating a precipitation pattern, and is directed toward an entrenched river as a base level. During the early phase of karstification both the permeable rock matrix, modeled as triangular elements, and fractures within the rock matrix,...[Show more]
