IAH-NSW Monthly presentation 8th April

Tuesday 1 April, 2014

Dear IAH NSW friends, please join us on the 8th of April to attend Mr Mahdi Zoorabadi’s presentation on ‘Hydraulic conductivity of jointed rocks: New estimation approach and new insights into the field tests’.

Rock discontinuities play a significant role in the circulation of water through jointed rocks, while the geometrical characteristics of joints control the magnitude and orientation of the hydraulic conductivity tensor. This presentation includes a new approach to estimate the hydraulic conductivity of jointed rocks on the basis of the geometrical properties of rock discontinuities. This framework provides the capability to estimate the 3D tensor of hydraulic conductivity and assess the variation average hydraulic conductivity with depth.

Hope to see you there!
