... and flowback. Cohesive Zone Method (CZM) has been used for modeling fracture propagation. The presented model distinguished the propped part from the unpropped part of the fracture. At the beginning of flowback, the proppants may not be completely compacted in early shut-in time. Thus, permeability...

The permeability and the wettability of coated proppant packs are compared with non-coated packs to determine the reduction in friction or enhancement in fracture conductivity. The simulation of flow in a proppant pack is done using sand packs of different...
