Modeling conservative tracer transport in fracture networks with a hybrid approach based on the Boltzmann transport equation

, : Modeling conservative tracer transport in fracture networks with a hybrid approach based on the Boltzmann transport equation. Water Resources Research 39(11): 1324

Fractures often represent the primary transport pathways within low-permeability rock. Continuum models based on the advective-dispersion equation have difficulty representing the complex transport phenomenology observed in field studies. Discrete fracture network models can represent a greater range of transport behaviour at the price of being computationally intensive, which restricts their application to small rock volumes.

The incidence of recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR) after restrictive annuloplasty (RA) was 5% to 2% in several reports. There are many opinions in favor of adding subvalvular procedures to RA to reduce the tenting forces and improve the repair r...
