Journal Article
SURI, Y., ISLAM, S.Z. and HOSSAIN, M. 2019. A new CFD approach for proppant transport in unconventional hydraulic fractures. Journal of natural gas science and engineering [online], 70, article number 102951. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jngse.2019.102951

For hydraulic fracturing design in unconventional reservoirs, the existing proppant transport models ignore the fluid leak-off effect from the fracture side wall and the effect of fracture roughness. In this paper, a model is proposed using three-dim... Read More about A new CFD approach for proppant transport in unconventional hydraulic fractures..
