Abstract

In this paper, a model is presented that identifies some key hydrogeological parameters in fractured porous media, subjected to undrained earth tide loading. The model is initially developed for a single fracture system in order to obtain the change of pressure in the rock matrix. For a linear system, the effect of fracture network is accommodated by applying the principle of superposition. The decay of the traveling pressure wave in the fracture is based on the dampened oscillatory solution. The method developed in this paper may be used for predicting the pressure variation under given conditions to estimate the characteristics of the fracture network, and for validating the data obtained by in-situ tests of water level fluctuations due to earth tides.
