About this book

Supported by examples, cases, illustrations and references, this book provides tools to solve practical engineering problems. It covers the fundamentals of fractured rock hydraulics under a tensor approach and presents key concepts about approximate solutions. The book also discusses data analysis techniques applied to groundwater modeling and unique 3D finite difference algorithms to simulate practical problems concerning the hydraulic behavior of saturated, heterogeneous and randomly fractured rock masses without restriction to the geometry and properties of their discontinuities.
