Numerical Simulation in Hydraulic Fracturing : Multiphysics Theory and Applications (Hardcover) (Xinpu
about this item
Hydraulic fracturing is not only a key technology in the development of unconventional oil and gas resources such as shale gas etc, but also a key technology and essential contents in the design of drilling cuttings disposal by the way of reinjection. Multiphysics modeling provides an effective and practical tool for 3-dimensional (3-D) modeling of hydraulic fracturing in the petroleum industry. This book introduces the theory and numerical applications of multiphysics modeling in hydraulic fracturing.Numerical solution of multi-physics modeling in Geomechanics bridges the gap between the relevant theories and the practical projects in the petroleum industry. This book aims to provide examples of solving problems in practical cases. It introduces engineering background of drilling and completion practice, and provides introductions of specific key numerical modeling skills. And thus it can be used as a manual for modeling skills for numerical engineers in petroleum engineering.This book can also be used as a course reference book by graduate students majoring in solid mechanics and petroleum engineering, as well as for geotechnical engineers.
