FLOW-DEFORMATION RESPONSE OF DUAL-POROSITY MEDIA

A constitutive model for the coupled flow-deformation response of dual-porosity media is presented in this paper. The formulation is stated in component terms, where behavior is controlled by mechanical and hydraulic response of the individual porous and fractured phases. Representation in this form allows the potential importance of dual-porosity effects to be evaluated in controlling the coupled flow-deformation behavior of fractured geologic media.
