A model that incorporates a pseudo-random process controlled by mechanical rules of fracturing is used to generate 3D orthogonal joint networks in tabular stratified aquifers. The results presented here assume that two sets of fractures, each with different conductivities, coexist. This is the case in many aquifers or petroleum reservoirs that contain sets of fractures with distinct hydraulic...
