Using Particle Flow Code (PFC3D), a discrete element model is presented in this paper that allows direct modeling of stick-slip behavior in pre-existing weak planes such as joints, beddings and faults. The model is used to simulate a biaxial sliding experiment from literature on a saw-cut...
Two major applications of microseismic (MS) monitoring in petroleum engineering are hydraulic fracturing operations and caprock integrity assurance. With respect to caprock integrity, this research has investigated the observation of the absence of detectable magnitudes of microseismic events as...
