AbstractThis paper presents a technique for estimating the geometrical representative elementary volume (REV) of a fractured rock mass based on fracture connectivity. A three-dimensional fracture network model, of dimensions 78mx50mx50m, was generated and validated for a granite rock mass using joint data collected from an exploration tunnel at the Songta dam site in southwest China. Two hundred and forty cubic specimens with edge lengths ranging from 1 to 20m were sampled from the model, and connectivity parameters of each specimen, including the number of intersections per unit volume (C-1) and the intersection length per unit volume (L-1), were calculated. The REV was determined using the connectivity parameters and a series of statistical tests. The results demonstrate that both the C-1- and L-1-based REVs are equal to 11mx11mx11m. In this work, the volumetric fracture intensity (P-32) was also used to calculate the REV for comparison. The REV obtained by P-32 is 9mx9mx9m, which is smaller than that calculated by C-1 and L-1. Finally, the geometrical REV for the rock mass by integrating C-1, L-1, and P-32 is 11mx11mx11m.
