A new stochastic model for fracture transmissivity assessment
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2008

A new stochastic model is proposed for fracture counts and transmissivities in a borehole interval. This new model incorporates several empirical observations, including: (i) Clustering of fractures; (ii) Exponential fracture spacings; (iii) Transmissivities extending over several orders of magnitude; (iv) Power law probability tail for transmissivities at finer scales; (v) Log-normal transmissivities at larger scales; and (vi) Dependence between fracture counts and transmissivities. Several example applications are provided using borehole data from Sweden
