...-wave modes exist that propagate along fracture intersections. Ultrasonic waves propagated along the intersection between two orthogonal, synthetic fractures in aluminum were compared with waves that were propagated through the bulk and along single fractures as a function of stress. Intersections give...

... ABSTRACT: Laboratory experiments were performed to determine the spatial variability of seismic fracture specific stiffness and the dominant flow path within a single fracture subjected to normal stress. Two cylindrical granite specimens were used in the study: an intact sample and a fractured...

... is the hydromechanical behavior of a single fracture. The mechanical and transport properties of fractures in rock depend on the topography of the contacting surfaces and the degree of mismatch between them. Understanding this behavior in the earth requires knowledge of how fracture topography and aperture scales...
