Simulation of Hydraulic Fracture Propagation Interacted with Natural Fractures
MetadataShow full item record
This study developed an advance understanding of the mechanisms of hydraulic fracture initiation, propagation, and natural fractures interaction based-on thorough investigation of effects of various parameters associated with hydraulic and natural fractures through numerical modelling, simulation and laboratory experiments. Thesis progressively demonstrates different steps of the development of numerical modelling, simulation and experimental validation. Factors influencing the initiation and propagation of hydraulic fracture, and natural fractures interactions are thoroughly discussed based upon comprehensive sensitivity studies.

Numerical and experimental investigation of the interaction of natural and propagated hydraulic fractureFatahi, Hassan; Hossain, Mofazzal; Sarmadivaleh, Mohammad (2017)Hydraulic fracturing is extensively used to develop unconventional reservoirs, such as tight gas, shale gas and shale oil reservoirs. These reservoirs are often naturally fractured. Presence of these natural fractures can ...
An experimental study to investigate hydraulic fracture reorientation with respect to principal stressesGotti, A.; Fallahzadeh, S.; Rasouli, Vamegh (2012)In this study we investigated the propagation of an induced hydraulic fracture experimentally. A true triaxial stress cell (TTSC) was used to apply three independent stresses of vertical, maximum and minimum horizontal ...
