Abstract In this technical paper, large-scale true triaxial tests were conducted with sandstone specimens to investigate several factors that determine whether hydraulic fractures can propagate from the tips of axial prefabricated cracks (pre-cracks). Specifically, we investigated the influence of pre-crack inclination angles on hydraulic fracture initiation locations and how the critical pre-crack angle varies with different confining stresses, fluid viscosities, and leak-off effects. The exper...
