Model Development

Numerical models will be developed to simulate evolving flow paths as precipitation occurs. These models will be based on data obtained from experimental work. This modelling will in turn aid in developing new experimental setups to examine the different theories which develop to predict the permeability evolution. The model will be used to scale up from experiments carried out at a few millimetres to  experiments carried out on natural exposures which are several square meters in size.
