Video demo of Irazu to simulate hydraulic fracturing
Posted by

Irazu is an advanced general-purpose rock deformation and fracturing simulation software. In this video, an application of Irazu to simulate fluid injection into a permeable, fractured rock mass is presented (i.e., hydraulic fracturing).

The software is capable of capturing: fluid-driven fracturing of intact rock; energy dissipation due to fluid viscosity and fracture toughness; fluid leak-off into permeable matrix and natural discontinuities; interaction between natural and induced fractures; influence of rock mass fabric on stimulated volume.

Make sure to watch in HD, full-screen and listen to the narrative.
