Re: [Question #689755]: Modeling hydarulic fracturing in rock medium


Question #689755 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Robert Caulk proposed the following answer:
There does not exist any documentation or example scripts at the moment.
It is a pity since I think the paper you reference is quite nice. In
fact, DFNFlow is still not even compiled by default. You will need to
compile from sources and activate DFNFlow by modifying the source code.
Uncomment this line [1]. As for adding DFNFlow to a script, there is
nothing particularly special to do besides replacing FlowEngine in your
engine list with DFNFlowEngine. You have some attributes that should be
controlled (same way as you control normal flowengine attributes) as
highlighted in the source [2]. Finally, make sure you use JCFpm, since
that is the only material/constitutive law that will work with DFNFlow
right now. Then you should be good to go.

If you wish to exactly reproduce the Papachristos paper that you
reference, you will need to contact the corresponding author of that
publication to request more info.
