Abstract

A model describing the mechanical and hydraulic behavior of rock fractures subjected to shear loading is introduced. The model is based on statistical and geostatistical descriptions of fracture surface topography, an elastic deformation mechanism, and equivalent aperture concepts. The performance of the representation is demonstrated by modelling the behavior of a hypothetical fracture specimen.
