Interests: fluid flow and solute transport in rock fractures; nonlinear flow; fractal properties of rock fractures; predictive models of fracture network permeability
The fluid flow in fractured porous media plays a significant role on the characteristic/assessment of deep underground reservoirs, such as CO2 sequestration, enhanced oil recovery, and geothermal energy development. In recent years, many methods including laboratory experiment, theoretical analysis and numerical simulation have been employed to investigate fluid flow in fractured porous media. However, due to the complex and uncertain geometric properties of rock masses in deep underground, deep studies on the fluid flow in fractured porous media such as permeability prediction and/or nonlinear flow are still needed.
This Special Issue on “Fluid Flow in Fractured Porous Media” aims at presenting recent advances in fluid flow in fractured porous media. We invite you to submit comprehensive review papers and original articles. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Two-phase flow in rock fractures
- Nonlinear flow regimes in complex fracture networks
- Fractal-based approach to study fluid flow
- Coupled shear-flow processes in fractures
- New numerical simulation methods of water-rock interactions

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1100 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2019 an APC of 1200 CHF applies. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
