Modelling doublets and double porosity

Modelling doublets and double porosity
Modelling doublets and double porosity
A simple model has been developed as a scoping tool for transport between an injection well
and an abstraction well pumping at the same rate (i.e. a doublet) in a fractured porous rock. This model
is aimed primarily at the planning and preliminary interpretation of tracer tests and trial heat exchange
using thermal doublets in the Chalk aquifer. The model is essentially a particular case of transport along
multiple flow paths and relies on the invariance of double-porosity transport with respect to velocity
variations along a flow path. Hypothetical simulations demonstrate that solute tracer tests need to be
supplemented by information on fracture porosity in order to be able to predict thermal breakthrough.

Abstract

A simple model has been developed as a scoping tool for transport between an injection well
and an abstraction well pumping at the same rate (i.e. a doublet) in a fractured porous rock. This model
is aimed primarily at the planning and preliminary interpretation of tracer tests and trial heat exchange
using thermal doublets in the Chalk aquifer. The model is essentially a particular case of transport along
multiple flow paths and relies on the invariance of double-porosity transport with respect to velocity
variations along a flow path. Hypothetical simulations demonstrate that solute tracer tests need to be
supplemented by information on fracture porosity in order to be able to predict thermal breakthrough.
