Effective permeability of cracked unsaturated porous materials

Abstract : This study focuses on a theoretical estimation of the effective permeability of unsaturated cracked porous media. The closed-form flow solution around and in a superconductive crack, embedded in an infinite porous matrix under a far-field condition, is recalled first. Then the solution of flow around a completely unsaturated (empty) crack that is considered as an obstruction against the flow is determined. The flow solution for partially saturated crack in special configurations is obtained by superposition of the two basic solutions for superconductive and empty cracks. The contribution of an unsaturated crack, with a given saturation degree, to the effective permeability is estimated by using dilute upscaling scheme. Numerical results obtained by Finite Elements Method, are in good agreement with the theoretical results for weak crack densities but show the additional effect of cracks interaction for higher densities. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
