Study on relations between porosity and damage in fractured rock mass
Xinhua Xue

    The porosity is often regarded as a linear function of fluid pressure in porous media and permeability is approximately looked as constants. However, for some scenarios such as unconsolidated sand beds, abnormal high pressured oil formation or large deformation of porous media for pore pressure dropped greatly, the change in porosity is not a linear function of fluid pressure in porous media, and permeability can't keep a constant yet. This paper mainly deals with the relationship between the damage variable and permeability properties of a deforming media, which can be considered as an exploratory attempt in this field.
