This is 3D DFN simulation data from steady-state pumping tests using flow logs. It includes 20 realizations (r111-r130). The natural background hydraulic gradient is considered in the simulations, for 0.01 and 0.1. Three pumping drawdowns, i.e., 6m, 10m, and 22m are applied. The in-fracture heterogeneity (fracture surface roughness) is considered in the simulations.


Steps to reproduce

The DFN models are generated by using the open-source code dfnWorks. The information about dfnWorks can be found in https://dfnworks.lanl.gov/. The parameters can be found in Zou, L., & Cvetkovic, V.(2020).
