      In spite of the significant developments seen in recent years,numerical modelin of Hydraulic Fracturing still poses major challenges due to the strong coupling between fluid flow and crack development,which is itself a ...
    • Coupled H-M fracture interaction using FEM with zero-thickness interface elements 

      Garolera Vinent, Daniel; Segura Serra, Josep Maria; Carol, Ignacio; Lakshmikantha, Ramasesha Mookanahallipatna; Alvarellos Iglesias, José (2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Massive treatments of hydraulic fracturing is a procedure employed for low permeability reservoirs stimulation. This technique consists in generating a series of parallel spaced fractures parallel (multi-stage fracturing). ...
