Stress and shear effects on fluid flow and solute transport in rock fractures
2013 (English)In: Rock Characterisation, Modelling and Engineering Design Methods - Proceedings of the 3rd ISRM SINOROCK 2013 Symposium, Taylor & Francis Group, 2013, 33-44 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper provides a brief summary of a continuous research programme by the authors since 2004, and highlights the research approach, achievements and outstanding issues for conceptual understanding, laboratory testing and mathematical modeling of the coupled stress-shear-fluid flow-solute transport processes of rock fractures. The focuses are put on stress and shear induced fluid flow anisotropy, transport pass channeling, and impact of considering different retardation mechanisms in single fractures of crystalline rocks, typically granites, due to its importance for the performance and safety assessments of geological radioactive waste disposal projects.
