Abstract: This paper describes a numerical data set comprising the three-dimensional fracture network of a 1 m3 block of Bodmin granite. The data set can be downloaded from the following web sites:, and The purpose of this paper is to provide the scientific community with a true data set that can be used to validate models and simulations of fractured crystalline rock masses. The methodology for procuring additional data sets is also described.
