Discrete Fracture Network Modeling of Hydraulic Stimulation: by Mark W. McClure,Roland N. Horne

By Mark W. McClure,Roland N. Horne

Discrete Fracture community Modeling of Hydraulic Stimulation describes the advance and checking out of a version that fluid-flow, deformation, friction weakening, and permeability evolution in huge, advanced two-dimensional discrete fracture networks.  The version can be utilized to discover the habit of hydraulic stimulation in settings the place matrix permeability is low and preexisting fractures play a big position, corresponding to stronger Geothermal structures and fuel shale.  Used also to describe natural shear stimulation, mixed-mechanism stimulation, or natural opening-mode stimulation. numerous novel ideas to make sure potency and life like version behavior are carried out, and tested.  The simulation method is additionally used as an effective strategy for without delay fixing quasistatic fracture touch problems.  effects exhibit how stresses brought about by means of fracture deformation in the course of stimulation at once influence the mechanism of propagation and the ensuing fracture network.
