Overview

The book explores the theoretical background of one of the most widespread activities in hydrocarbon wells, that of hydraulic fracturing. A comprehensive treatment of the basic phenomena includes: linear elasticity, stresses, fracture geometry and rheology. The diverse concepts of mechanics are integrated into a coherent description of hydraulic fracture propagation. The chapters in the book are cross-referenced throughout and the connections between the various phenomena are emphasized. The book offers readers a unique approach to the subject with the use of many numerical examples.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on university and industry courses, provides a unified theoretical treatment of one of the most widespread phenomena in oil and natural gas wells. Describes the influence on a created fracture of elasticity, stress distribution, fluid flow, and the dynamics of the rupture process. Other aspects discussed include fracture geometry in two and three dimensions, rheology and laminar flow, non-laminar flow and solids transport, material balance, and fracture propagation. Also considers advanced issues of fluid mechanics such as foam rheology and accounting for mechanical energy. Provides many numerical examples. Annotation c.
