There are various alternative options concerning modeling fluid flow within fractures in porous media. We give a general overview, with remarks concerning the modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics. Moreover we define and study two test cases for intercomparison. Finally for one of the testcases some results of an extensive sensitivity study is presented.
