Summary : In Chapter 1, a finite volume-based arbitrary fracture propagation model is used to simulate fracture growth and geomechanical stresses during hydraulic fracture treatments. Single-phase flow, poroelastic displacement, and in situ stress tensor equations are coupled within a poroelastic reservoir domain. Stress analysis is used to identify failure initiation that proceeds by ...
