Modeling Crack Growth in geothermal Reservoir

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

I'm currently attempting to model crack growth resulting from an increase in pore pressure due to an injection well. The reservoir has a depth of 3600 meters, with a minimum horizontal stress (Sh) of 40 MPa and a maximum horizontal stress (SH) of 80 MPa. The initial pore pressure is set at 30 MPa. I'm facing challenges in achieving equilibrium in the model under these conditions, aiming for no deformation and no crack growth under the specified stresses. Any guidance or assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am using the poroelastic interface by the way. Thank you.
