Critically Stressed Fracture Analysis


  • Characterization of the orientation of the natural fractures, faults, and geomechanical features from borehole images
  • Determination of the in-situ stress field
  • Evaluation of traction vectors acting on the fracture planes
  • Identification of fractures whose traction components exceed a Mohr-Coulomb criterion
  • Representation of the critically stressed fractures poles on a stereographic projection
