Abstract [en]

The hydraulic behavior of a rock material structure is a major feature for its design and safety assessment. Similar to all other physical prob-lems, in order to enclose the governing equations systems and achieve a solution, the hydraulic characteristics of these materials need to be determined experimentally and implemented then into adopted thermo-dynamical models. This paper covers the process of the design, con-struction and operation of an experimental rig built for this specific purpose. Using the constructed large-scale permeameter, tests have been conducted. The non-linear hydraulic behavior of various materials under extreme turbulent conditions, where Reynolds number reaches un-precedented values, has not been studied before. Preliminary results are presented and discussed.
