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

The role of hydromechanical coupling in fractured rock engineering
This paper provides a review of hydromechanical (HM) couplings in fractured rock, with special emphasis on HM interactions as a result of, or directly connected with human activities. In the earlyExpand

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

A New Coal-Permeability Model: Internal Swelling Stress and Fracture–Matrix Interaction
We have developed a new coal-permeability model for uniaxial strain and constant confining-stress conditions. The model is unique in that it explicitly considers fracture–matrix interaction duringExpand
