Abstract
The presence of pore fluid in rock affects both the elastic and inelastic deformation processes, yet laboratory testing is typically performed on dry material even though in situ the rock is often saturated. Techniques were developed for testing fluid-saturated porous rock under the limiting conditions of drained, undrained, and unjacketed response. Confined compression experiments, both conventional triaxial and plane strain, were performed on water-saturated Berea sandstone to investigate poroelastic and inelastic behavior. Measured drained response was used to calibrate an elasto-plastic constitutive model that predicts undrained inelastic deformation. The experimental data show good agreement with the model: dilatant hardening in undrained triaxial and plane strain compression tests under constant mean stress was predicted and observed.

A plane strain condition for testing rock is developed through passive restraint in the form of a thick-walled cylinder. The so-called biaxial frame generates the intermediate principal stress that imposes a triaxial state of stress on a prismatic specimen. Major and minor principal stresses and corresponding strains are accurately measured, providing data to calculate the elastic (Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio), inelastic (dilatancy angle), and strength (friction angle and cohesion) param...

The unjacketed bulk modulus of sandstone, Ks′, is often considered to be equal to the bulk modulus of quartz, the main mineral which forms it. However, preliminary tests and some other works show that for Berea sandstone this assumption might be violated. Three different types of laboratory experiments were

Microseismic data analysis together with interpretation of injection data at the In Salah CO2 storage site provides a valuable tool for improved understanding of the subsurface injection and storage processes. More than 1500 microseismic events have been detected semi-automatically between August 2009 and May 2012 and the occurrence of the events correlates clearly with increased injection rates and well-head pressures. Most likely the fracture pressure has been exceeded temporarily, resulting i...

[1] In order to investigate the role of drainage conditions in deformation and fracture behaviors of porous rocks, the authors carried out a series of rock fracture tests under triaxial compression in the laboratory. The detailed space-time distribution of acoustic emission due to microcracking was used to examine pre-failure damage and failure behavior in Berea sandstone, which has a porosity of ∼20% and a permeability of ∼100 mD. The pore pressures or flow rates at the ends of the test sample ...

Abstract null null To investigate the effect of water on the fracture mechanism and associated acoustic emission (AE) characteristics, triaxial compression experiments were performed on dry and water-saturated tight sandstone specimens sampled from the Sichuan Basin, China. The saturated specimen was precisely controlled by different drainage conditions at the two ends. The detailed spatiotemporal distribution of AE activities and the P-wave velocities were used to examine the initiation and pro...

Abstract null null The low permeability of coal seams significantly restrains the efficient extraction of coal-seam methane. Hydroshearing treatment is suitable for enhancing the permeability of coal seams because of their low mechanical strength and unique fracture–matrix structure. The shear dilation behavior associated with the increase in the void volume in porous media is critical for the evaluation of the permeability enhancement during hydroshearing. In this study, we performed convention...

Displaced faults crossing the reservoir could significantly increase the induced earthquake frequency in geo‐energy projects. Understanding and predicting the stress variation in such cases is essential to minimize the risk of induced seismicity. Here, we adopt the inclusion theory to develop an analytical solution for the stress response to pore pressure variations within the reservoir for both permeable and impermeable faults with offset ranging from zero to the reservoir thickness. By analyzi...

Abstract A laboratory study of inelastic deformation and localization was conducted to evaluate microseismicity and fracture in fluid-saturated rock. Plane strain compression experiments were performed on oil- and water-saturated Berea sandstone under dry, drained, undrained, and quasi-unjacketed conditions. Parameters associated with the elastic and inelastic material response were accurately measured and used in a constitutive model to predict localization of deformation under the drained and ...

Injection of CO2 into the subsurface requires consideration of the poromechanical behavior of reservoir rock saturated with aqueous fluid. The material response is usually assumed to be elastic, to avoid consideration of induced seismicity, or viscoelastic, if long-term deformations are needed to be taken into the account. Both elastic and viscous behavior may be influenced by the chemical reactions that are caused by the acidic mixture formed as high-pressure CO2 enters the pore space saturated...

This study shows the significant and nonlinear effect of the competition between dilation and fluid flow on the shear strength of constrained shear bands in fluid-saturated rocks. This effect is conditioned by the contribution of the pore pressure to the yield stress and strength. The pore pressure is controlled by the dilation of the pore space in the solid skeleton of the shear band during plastic deformation and by squeezing of pores in surrounding blocks by the dilating shear band due to the...

Current geomechanical applications imply non-isothermal processes of unsaturated geomaterials, in most cases following stress paths different than the classical triaxial compression often used in laboratory testing. Though the effects of temperature, suction and stress path direction (Lode’s angle) on the strength of geomaterials have been investigated independently, the integrated analysis combining the three effects has not been performed yet. In this paper, we formulate a thermo-plastic const...
