flowplane property command

Syntax

flowplane property keyword ... <range>

Primary keywords:

a-factor    b-factor    aperture-maximum    aperture-minimum    aperture-initial

Set flow plane properties.

a-factor f

Set exponent on aperture for conductivity. The default is 3.0.

b-factor f

Set “b” factor for conductivity. The default is 1.0.

aperture-maximum f

Set maximum allowable joint hydraulic aperture in flow rate calculation.

aperture-minimum f

Set minimum allowable joint hydraulic aperture.

aperture-initial f

Set hydraulic aperture at zero normal stress. If the nodisplacement keyword is used with the block insitu command, then aperture-initial is the initial hydraulic aperture at the applied normal stress.
