Paper presented at the 55th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 18–25, 2021
Paper Number: ARMA-2021-0015
... ABSTRACT: This paper investigates experimentally proppant flow and transport through intersected slots at angles representing interaction between pre-existing and new fractures. Proppant is small granular material, placed in hydraulic fractures during geothermal and hydrocarbon reservoir...
Paper presented at the 52nd U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 17–20, 2018
Paper Number: ARMA-2018-1189
... ABSTRACT: This paper presents experimental results and analysis of proppant flow and transport in narrow fractures. Proppant is granular material used in hydraulic fracturing for permeability enhancement of geo-reservoirs. Proppant-fluid slurry is pumped into a fracture network to prevent...
Paper presented at the 47th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 23–26, 2013
Paper Number: ARMA-2013-342
... Abstract: This study focuses on micro-mechanical understanding of horizontal proppant flow and transport in a narrow hydraulic fracture. This research is motivated by problems encountered in practice related to proppant placement problems, such as proppant pack formation in shear fractures...
