Natural fractures are important conduits for fluid-flow and can control the deformational behavior of rock. The accurate evaluation of natural fracture geometry in the subsurface is difficult because of the sampling problems inherent to wellbores and indirect investigation methods such as seismic. Because of these limitations in observational capability, predictive models are needed to provide more constraint on natural fracture characteristics. One approach is to look at the mechanics of… CONTINUE READING
