    Analysis of Channeling-Path Phenomena in a Complex Fault-Block Reservoir with Low Recovery Factor and High Water-Cut Ratio

    Qunyi Wang1, Xiaoli Ma1, Yongbin Bi1, Haiyan He1, Xiao Gu1, Tongjing Liu2,*, Lekun Zhao3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.2, pp. 361-377, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.020358

    Abstract Current methods for the analysis of channeling-path phenomena in reservoirs cannot account for the influence of time and space on the actual seepage behavior. In the present study, this problem is addressed considering actual production data and dynamic characteristic parameters quantitatively determined in the near wellbore area by fitting the water-cut curve of the well. Starting from the dynamic relationship between injection and production data, the average permeability is determined and used to obtain a real-time quantitative characterization of the seepage behavior of the channeling-path in the far wellbore area. For the considered case study More >

    Cohesive Strength and Separation Energy as Characteristic Parameters of Fracture Toughness and Their Relation to Micromechanics

    W. Brocks1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 233-244, 2005, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2005.001.233

    Abstract A review on phenomenological fracture criteria is given, based on the energy balance for cracked bodies, and the respective toughness parameters are related to micromechanical processes. Griffith's idea of introducing a "surface energy" and Barenblatt's concept of a "process zone" ahead of the crack tip build the foundation of modern cohesive models, which have become versatile tools for numerical simulations of crack extension. The cohesive strength and the separation energy used as phenomenological material parameters in these models appear to represent a physically significant characterisation of "fracture toughness". Micromechanical interpretations of these parameters can be More >
