Abstract
Using the conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy, a model is elaborated to describe the dynamics of high-energy gases in composite-perforation technological processes. The model includes a precise representation of the gunpowder combustion and related killing fluid displacement. Through numerical solution of such equations, the pressure distribution of the high-energy gas in fractures is obtained, and used to determine crack propagation. The accuracy of the model is verified by comparing the simulation results with actual measurements.
