Mechanics of Hydraulic Fracturing

Comprehensive single-volume reference work providing an overview of experimental results and predictive methods for hydraulic fracture growth in rocks

Mechanics of Hydraulic Fracturing: Experiment, Model, and Monitoring provides a summary of the research in mechanics of hydraulic fractures during the past two decades, plus new research trends to look for in the future. The book covers the contributions from theory, modeling, and experimentation, including the application of models to reservoir stimulation, mining preconditioning, and the formation of geological structures. The four expert editors emphasize the variety of diverse methods and tools in hydraulic fracturing and help the reader understand hydraulic fracture mechanics in complex geological situations.

To aid in reader comprehension, practical examples of new approaches and methods are presented throughout the book. Key topics covered in the book include:
* Prediction of fracture shapes, sizes, and distributions in sedimentary basins, plus their importance in petroleum industry
* Real-time monitoring methods, such as micro-seismicity and trace tracking
* How to uncover geometries of fractures like dikes and veins
* Fracture growth of individual foundations and its applications

Researchers and professionals working in the field of fluid-driven fracture growth will find immense value in this comprehensive reference on hydraulic fracturing mechanics.
