For a fissured medium with uncertainty in the knowledge of fractures’ geometry, a conservative tangential flow field is constructed which is consistent with the physics of stationary fluid flow in porous media and the triangulated geometry of the cracks. The flow field permits computing preferential fluid flow directions of the medium, rates of mechanical energy dissipation and a stochastic matrix modeling stream lines and fluid mass transport, for the analysis of solute/contaminant mass advection-diffusion as well as drainage times. Computational examples will be presented.
