A modeling approach for analysis of coupled multiphase fluid flow, heat transfer, and deformation in fractured porous rock
Abstract This paper presents the methodology in which two computer codes—TOUGH2 and FLAC3D—are linked and jointly executed for coupled thermal–hydrologic–mechanical (THM) analysis of multiphase fluidExpand

Large-scale impact of CO2 storage in deep saline aquifers: A sensitivity study on pressure response in stratified systems
Abstract Large volumes of CO2 captured from carbon emitters (such as coal-fired power plants) may be stored in deep saline aquifers as a means of mitigating climate change. Storing these additionalExpand

A method for quick assessment of CO2 storage capacity in closed and semi-closed saline formations
Saline aquifers of high permeability bounded by overlying/underlying seals may be sur- rounded laterally by low-permeability zones, possibly caused by natural heterogeneity and/ or faulting. CarbonExpand

Stress-dependent permeability of fractured rock masses: A numerical study
We investigate the stress-dependent permeability issue in fractured rock masses considering the effects of nonlinear normal deformation and shear dilation of fractures using a two-dimensionalExpand

Geohydromechanical Processes in the Excavation Damaged Zone in Crystalline Rock, Rock Salt, and Indurated and Plastic Clays
The creation of an excavation disturbed zone or excavation damaged zone is expected around all man-made openings in geologic formations. Macro- and micro-fracturing, and in general a redistributionExpand

Natural and industrial analogues for leakage of CO2 from storage reservoirs: identification of features, events, and processes and lessons learned
Instances of gas leakage from naturally occurring CO2 reservoirs and natural gas storage sites serve as analogues for the potential release of CO2 from geologic storage sites. This paper summarizesExpand

A study of caprock hydromechanical changes associated with CO2-injection into a brine formation
Abstract.A numerical study of hydromechanical changes during a deep underground injection of supercritical CO2 in a hypothetical brine aquifer/caprock system is conducted. The injection process isExpand

Flow and tracer transport in a single fracture: A stochastic model and its relation to some field observations
Calculations for the flow and solute transport through a single rough-surfaced fracture were carried out. The fracture plane was discretized into a square mesh to which variable apertures wereExpand
