Hydro-mechanical upscaling of a fractured rockmass using a 3D numerical approach

Abstract : A new upscaling method has been developed using 3D numerical tools (RESOBLOK & 3DEC). This method has been successfully compared with standard analytical approaches in the case of a simple fracture network. This method has been applied to determine the equivalent permeability, stiffness and Biot tensor of a real fracture rock-mass at different scales. The effects of the fracture network properties and of the state of stress on the result have been investigated.
