    Abstract This paper compares the fluid flow phenomena occurring within a fractured reservoir for three different fracture models using computational fluid dynamics. The effect of the fracture-matrix interface condition is studied on the pressure and velocity distribution. The fracture models were compared based on the variation in pressure and permeability conditions. The model was developed for isotropic and anisotropic permeability conditions. The results suggest that the fracture aperture can have a drastic effect on fluid flow. The porous fracture-matrix interface condition produces more realistic transport of fluids. By increasing the permeability in the isotropic porous matrix, the pressure drop was significantly… More >
