Change in the Permeability of a Medium in the Inelastic Deformation Zone during an Underground Explosion
The magnitude of the flow of a liquid or gas through a rock mass via a network of fractures for a given pressure drop depends on the permeability of the rock mass. This characteristic of a rock mass determines the feasibility of ore-leaching operations, coal and shale gasification, petroleum and gas extraction, etc.
