Tip of the Week:
Model shear fracturing and its impact on tensile fracturing with fluid flow and geomechanics. When shear failure occurs on a grid block, the tensile threshold used in the Barton-Bandis fracture model can be increased to facilitate fracturing. Use this option to predict ‘frac-hits’, as grid blocks experience fracturing (due to tensile failure) much easier than a grid block without shear-failure.
