Open AccessMicro-seismicity, and especially felt seismicity, induced by Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) operations is a matter of scientific interest, not only because of the related risks and concerns, but also because the ...
Numerical advances to simulate shear failure and tensile failure due to hydraulic fracturing operations Gómez Castro, Berta María; De Simone, Silvia; Carrera Ramírez, Jesús (2017)
Open AccessIn recent years, some geological applications like the CO2 storage or the hydraulic fracturing have attracted the attention not only of the scientific community but also of the general public. One of the reasons of the ...
Thermal coupling may control mechanical stability of geothermal reservoirs during cold water injection De Simone, Silvia; Vilarrasa Riaño, Víctor; Carrera Ramírez, Jesús; Alcolea Rodríguez, Andrés; Meier, Peter (2013-01-17)
Restricted access - publisher's policyHydraulic stimulation and geothermal reservoir operation may compromise the rock mechanical stability and trigger microseismic events. The mechanisms leading to this induced seismicity are still not completely understood. ...
