Abstract
A discrete fracture, saturatedunsaturated numerical model is developed where the porous matrix is represented in three dimensions and fractures are represented by twodimensional planes. This allows a fully threedimensional description of the fracture network connectivity, Solute advection and diffusion in the porous matrix are also directly accounted for, The variablysaturated flow equation is discretized in space using a control volume finiteelement technique which ensures fluidconservation both locally and globally. Because the relative permeability and saturation curves for fractures may be highly nonlinear, and in strong contrast to those of the matrix, the robust NewtonRaphson iteration method is implemented according to the efficient procedure ofKropinski (1990) and Forsyth and Simpson (1991) to solve the variablysaturated flow equation. Upstream weighting of the relative permeabilities is used to yield a monotone solution that lies in the physical range and adaptive time stepping further enhances the efficiency of thesolution process, A timemarching Galerkin finiteelement technique is used to discretize the solute transport equation. Although the methodology is developed in a finiteelement framework, a finitedifferencediscretization for both groundwater flow and solute transport can be mimicked through a manipulation of the influence coefficient technique. The use of an ILUpreconditioned ORTHOMIN solver permits the fast solution of matrix equations having tens to hundreds of thousands of unknowns. Verification examples are presented along with illustrative problems that demonstrate the complexity of variablysaturated flow and solute transport in fractured systems.
