Abstract

Accurate quantification of roughness is important in modeling strength, deformability and fluid flow behaviors of joints. Self-affine fractals seem to have potential to represent rock joint roughness profiles. Both stationary and non-stationary fractional Brownian profiles with known values of fractal dimension, D, and input standard deviation, σ, were generated. For different values of the input parameter of the roughness-length method, D and another associated fractal parameter A were calculated for the aforementioned profiles. In general, significant results were obtained.
