Continuum modelling of contaminant transport in fractured porous media


Continuum modelling of contaminant transport in fractured porous media

This work is aimed towards deriving macroscopic models that describe pollutant migration through fractured porous media. A homogenization method is used, that is, macroscopic models are deduced from the physical description over a representative elementary volume (REV), which consists of an open fracture surrounded by a porous matrix block. No specific geometry is at issue. The fractured porous medium is saturated by an incompressible fluid.
