Changes of hydraulic conductivity driven by effective stress
Does TOUGH have a simulator with geomechanics capabilities? I am specially interested in changes of hydraulic conductivity driven by effective stress.
It is my understanding that TReactMech can handle that but it looks like it is coupled with TOUGHREACT and this might be a bit of an overkill for me since I don’t need to consider thermal-hydrological-(biogeo)-chemical processes.
TOUGH has been coupled to the commercial software FLAC and also another code ROCMECH, to do coupled fluid flow and transport and geomechanics. If you look at the list of TOUGH publications at https://tough.lbl.gov/pubs/ you can learn more about them.
