ROCK MECHANICS
specific rock properties like uniaxial compressive strength (UCS), Young´s modulus, Poisson ratio, cohesion and angle of inner friction are determined by uniaxial and triaxial tests
PHOTOGRAMMETRY
photogrammetric studies allow for a rapid and reliable determination of fracture characteristics
GEOMECHANICAL MODELING
geomechanical reservoir models based on the FE-method are used to model the stress perturbations in relation to the fault systems
DFN MODELING
discrete fracture network (DFN) models based on geostatistical assumptions are commenly used for the extrapolation of fracture properties observed in wells to the km-scale of the reservoir
