We investigate the quasi-static growth of a fluid-driven frictional shear crack that propagates in mixed mode (II+III) on a planar fault interface that separates two identical half-spaces of a three-dimensional solid. The fault interface is characterized by a shear strength equal to the product of a constant friction coefficient and the local effective normal stress. Fluid is injected into the fault interface and two different injection scenarios are considered: injection at constant volume rate...

Abstract We investigate the propagation and arrest of a radial hydraulic fracture upon the end of the injection. Depending on the regime of propagation at the time of shut-in of the injection, excess elastic energy may be stored in the surrounding medium. Once the injection has stopped, the hydraulic fracture will arrest when the energy release rate falls under the material fracture energy. Fluid leaking-off to the surrounding medium acts as an energy sink such that the available excess energy f...

Abstract The quasi-brittle nature of rocks challenges the basic assumptions of linear hydraulic fracture mechanics (LHFM): namely, linear elastic fracture mechanics and smooth parallel plates lubrication fluid flow inside the propagating fracture. We relax these hypotheses and investigate in details the growth of a plane-strain hydraulic fracture in an impermeable medium accounting for a rough cohesive zone and a fluid lag. In addition to a dimensionless toughness and the time-scale t o m of coa...
