FMGN, RENUMN, POLY, TRIPOLY: Suite of Programs for calculating and analyzing flow and transport in fracture networks embedded in porous matrix blocks
Description: This report describes a suite of programs developed at the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) for simulating flow and solute transport in fracture networks embedded in porous matrix blocks. The codes FMGN, RENUMN and TRIPOLY are extensions of the older codes FMG, RENUM and TRINET developed at the Berkeley Lab, and references are made to previous Berkeley Lab reports which describe those codes. The first section of this report describes the general background of TRIPOLY and the theory of treating the fluid and solute exchange between fractures and rock. The second section is a user`s manual for the programs FMGN, RENUMN, POLY and TRIPOLY. Note that the description of FMGN and RENUMN is very short in this section. FMGN and RENUMN are relatively unchanged from the old codes FMG and RENUM, and only the differences between the old and new versions are listed in this report. For work with FMGN and RENUMN we refer to the detailed description of theory and design in BILLAUX et al. and the user`s manual in BILLAUX et al. respectively. For the other codes POLY (newly developed) and TRIPOLY (features major changes compared to the old program version TRINET) a detailed user`s manual is enclosed in this report. It provides the user with sufficient information to run the programs. The third section of this report comprises some sample problems as a tutorial.
