Golshani, Aliakbar and Tran-Cong, Thanh (2006) Modelling a borehole subjected to fluid pressure. In: 2006 International Conference on Nonlinear Analysis & Engineering Mechanics Today, 11-14 Dec 2006, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Fluid pressure inside a borehole produces hydraulic fracture and damage zones in the vicinity of the borehole. These fractures result from stress concentrations around the borehole. The results of numerical simulation of a borehole subjected to fluid pressure using a micromechanical damage model  are presented in this paper. It is observed that tensional concentrated stresses are generated around the bottom of the borehole by the applied fluid pressure. Furthermore, fractures develop from the corners of the bottom of the borehole.
