MINC for multiple continua, not necessarily fractures

2 posts in this topic

I am interested in dual porosity (or dual permeability) flow between two porous media. Using MINC, I can define the material properties of the "fractured" media to be whatever I want, even lower permeability than the matrix. This leads to me think that the "fractured" media is not necessarily composed  fractures, but can be any media. Is this correct? I only see MINC used for fracture flow in the literature, so I get the impression I'm in error. Thank you.

Also, how do I invoke the "proximity function" to allow randomly spaced and randomly oriented fractures (i.e., not only right angles)?
