Consistent mesh for fluid flow in fractured porous media
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi everyones,
:rolleyes: I'm currently working on the subject of fluid flow in fractured porous media. The fractures are considered as the circles of zero-thinkness in 3D infinite space. The fractures can intersect together.

I want to generate a consistent mesh i.e. it takes into account the intersection lines between fractures. In the case of small number of fractures I can performance by hand. (as you see in the attached image1)

:confused: However, in the case of large number of ramdon fractures (as seeing in the following attacted files image2). It is necessary to have an automatical procedure.
