Development and validation of a fracture model for the granite rocks at Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory, Japan

Elena, K.*; Teklu, H.*; Wang, Y.*; Iwatsuki, Teruki ; Ozaki, Yusuke 

In this study, Discrete Fracture Network Model (DFN) is built based on the fracture data observed in the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory. 297 fractures data with discharge is analyzed for the estimation of stochastic quantity under the assumption that those fractures are permeable and have an great impact on the hydraulic conductivity field. Both models of fracture and hydraulic conductivity around the Closure Test Drift at the depth of 500m are generated from derived stochastic models. The hydraulic model is input into the numerical simulation. The matching of calculated and observed inflow into research tunnel indicates the validity of generated model and modeling approach for fractured rock. These results are a part of results in Task C of Decovalex2019.
