... the fracturing processes. At present, the number of AE events and the spatial distribution of AE locations are the two main factors considered in the evaluation of fracturing effect. A large number of AE events and a wide spatial distribution of AE locations often indicate a better fracturing effect. However...

The temporal analysis of the different cracking processes detected through AE and DIC revealed the higher contribution of tensile cracks in relaxation...

By evaluating the time-variation of the source mechanisms of the AE events produced, it was noted that the number of AE events were spread-out throughout the specimen rather than concentrated near the flaws. This is interpreted to be a result of pore pressures diffusing through a larger area...

Experimental results show that the location of small few AE events along BP near the wellbore and stable injection pressure indicated the fracturing fluid leaking into the dilated BP under low injection rate (= 10 mL/min).

The number of waves, and subsequently the number of located AE events, make structures determined within dense point clouds of AE data difficult to interpret.

When the fracturing fluid slowly leaked into the BPs, the injection pressure remained stable and AE activity became low. Only a few AE events with low amplitude were located along the BP near the wellbore. Numerous shear...
