Experiment observations of hydraulic fractures crossing or blunting at natural boundaries
Video recordings from hydraulic fracture laboratory crossing experiments. Each video is a compilation of two lateral video cameras (and vertical for transparent PMMA) recording direct observation of growing hydraulic fractures combined with fracturing pressure.
Recordings are from the hydraulic fracture polyaxial lab at CSIRO Energy in Clayton, M... moreelbourne, Australia.
The data has been converted to H.264 (x264) 1920x1080 .mp4 format. less

1218.1 HF Coal Shale
Explore the interaction of hydraulic fractures with natural fractures that produce fracture geometries that are observed or inferred to typically occur in these reservoirs, including criteria determining crossing, offsetting, or blunting of a hydraulic fracture that encounters a natural fracture.
Hydraulic fracture crossing experiments
16 tests were completed across 13 rock samples and 2 PMMA samples were conducted to determine crossing criteria of natural boundaries and compare with 2D numerical simulations.
