In my three-year full time PhD study, I presented a critical literature review in microwave-assist coal permeability enhancement. Focus on the research gaps, I carried out a series of laboratory experiments to study the effect of microwave power, treatment time, and water saturation on microwave heating/fracturing effect of coal. I also proposed various numerical models to study microwave’s effect on coal permeability in laboratory scale and field scale.

Huang, J.; Xu, Guang; Chen, Y.; Chen, Z. (2018)© 2018 As hydraulic fracturing was forbidden in some countries due to possible negative environmental impacts and enhanced coalbed methane (ECBM) was restricted by in-situ conditions, microwave heating was proposed to ...
Experimental investigation on variation of physical properties of coal particles subjected to microwave irradiationHu, G.; Yang, N.; Xu, Guang; Xu, J. (2017)The gas drainage rate of low-permeability coal seam is generally less than satisfactory. This leads to the gas disaster of coal mine, and largely restricts the extraction of coalbed methane (CBM), and increases the emission ...
