Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks presents a current and comprehensive report on this emerging field that bridges the areas of geology and mechanics. It is of direct interest to a wide spectrum of earth scientists and engineers who are concerned with upper-crust mechanics and fluid movements, the most important fluids being oil and water.

This authoritative book is the result of a collaborative effort between scientists in academic institutions and industry. It examines important issues such as subsidence, geological fault formation, earthquake faulting, hydraulic fracturing, transport of fluids, and natural and direct applications.

Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks provides a unique interdisciplinary viewpoint, as well as case studies, conclusions, and recommendations for further research.

* Covers the physical, chemical, and mechanical analysis of porous saturated rock deformation on both large and small scales

* Discusses the latest developments of importance to engineers and geologists

* Examines natural and direct applications

* Incorporates numerous equations and illustrations including an online image gallery: books.elsevier.com/companions/0123053552

* Includes extensive bibliographies for each chapter

Synopsis:

Scientific understanding of fluid flow in rock fractures" a process underlying contemporary earth science problems from the search for petroleum to the controversy over nuclear waste storage" has evolved almost entirely in the past 20 years. Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks presents the first comprehensive report on the state of the field, with an interdisciplinary viewpoint, case studies of fracture sites, illustrations, conclusions, and research recommendations. <BR>The study of fluid flow in fractured rocks is used in recovering water, hydrocarbon supplies and geothermal energy, in predicting the flow of pollutants underground, and in engineering structures. Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks will discuss the various approaches used, and contains recommendations for interdisciplinary research. It also includes a discussion of practical problems in rock fractures and fluid flow, physical characteristics of fractures and their patterns, physical properties and fundamental processes, methods of fracture detection, hydraulic and tracer testing, field-scale flow and transport models, as well as induced changes to fracture systems.
