Connectivity of fracture networks: The effects of anisotropy and spatial correlation

Mohsen Masihi, Peter R King, Peyman Nurafza & Mohsen Masihi
In fractured formations of very low matrix permeability connectivity of fractures is a crucial parameter which may have a significant impact on the overall flow. The connectivity behaviour of fracture networks can be analysed by using percolation theory. The scaling law within this theory is used to predict the connectivity and its associated uncertainty very rapidly. Although the effects of some geometrical parameters of fractures (e.g. size distribution) on the universal connectivity curves are extensively...
