A Study and Modeling about Ground Water Flow Considering the Properties of Sedimentary Soft Rock

Inoue, Hiroyuki*; Ishiguro, Takeshi*; Kuji, Masayoshi*; Yoshino, Naoto

In this paper, authors examined the properties of sedimentary soft rock which might affect the groundwater flow rate and flow path in the sedimentary soft rock. As a general sample of sedimentary soft rock, we focused on the rock of HORONOBE area in HOKKAIDO prefecture. Then, following four issues were examined. 1) a study of numerical flow rate analysis considering the difference of water density in the sedimentary soft rock. 2) the hydro-geological modeling of HORONOBE area and a fundamental study of water pressure and saline density in HORONOBE area. 3) a fundamental study of numerical coupling analysis about groundwater flow rate ,the difference of underground temperature, rock pressure and deformation. 4) a study about best performance of numerical flow rate analysis program. As a result, hydro-geological modeling of HORONOBE area using the information before 2002 as input data was succeeded by using the basic geological model which was made by IMAI et al,. And the applicability of TOUGH2 program as analysis method considering the density difference of underground water in sedimentary soft rock was verified. Then, we will be able to simulate underground flow considering the difference of saline density and specific water pressure in HORONOBE area. In addition, the applicability of TOUGH-FLAC program in which TOUGH2 was coupled with FLAC3D and consider rock pressure and deformation was verified. The best numerical performance of TOUGH2 program was studied in order to deal with large scale simulations. Then, it was shown that efficient method of the best numerical performance about TOUGH2 was possible.
