Conceptual and mathematical modeling of unsaturated flow in single synthetic fractures - Laboratory testing –conceptual and mathematical modelling (3 years).
The objective of this work is to develop a computational tool for the study of unsaturated flow in single synthetic fractures. Specifically, the project regards the setting up of an apparatus to determine a mathematical model to describe unsaturated flow in a single synthetic fracture as a function of aperture, inclination, roughness etc.
