Elastic moduli of body-centered cubic lattice near rigidity percolation threshold: Finite-size effects and evidence for first-order phase transition

Extensive numerical simulations of rigidity percolation with only central forces in large three-dimensional lattices have indicated that many of their topological properties undergo a first-order phase transition at the rigidity percolation threshold p_{ce}. In contrast with such properties, past numerical calculations of the elastic moduli of the same lattices had provided evidence for a second-order phase transition. In this paper we present the results of extensive simulation of rigidity perc...

Percolation and fracture propagation in disordered solids represent two important problems in science and engineering that are characterized by phase transitions: loss of macroscopic connectivity at the percolation threshold {p}_{c}and formation of a macroscopic fracture network at the incipient fracture point (IFP). Percolation also represents the fracture problem in the limit of very strong disorder. An important unsolved problem is accurate prediction of physical properties of systems unde...

As the length of a horizontal well is increased, its contact with the reservoir increases. But at the same time, the resistance to flow in the well also increases, which has a direct negative effect on the productivity of the well. The overall performance of a horizontal well depends on the balance of these two opposing factors. No reliable tools are currently available that account for both these factors in the evaluation of horizontal well performance. A semi-analytical well-model is developed...

A general wellbore flow model, which incorporates not only frictional, accelerational, and gravitational pressure drops, but also the pressure drop caused by inflow, is presented in this paper. The new wellbore model is readily applicable to different wellbore perforation patterns and well completions, and can be easily incorporated in reservoir simulators or analytical reservoir inflow models. Three dimensionless numbers, the accelerational to frictional pressure gradient ratio R{sub af}, the g...
