Mechanics of Hydraulic FracturingBy
- Ching H. Yew, Ching H. Yew is a consulting engineer who specializes in the areas of hydraulic fracturing, directional drillings and coiled tubing mechanics. He was a former Professor of Engineering Mechanics with the University of Texas at Austin.
This book examines the underlying mechanics of creating a fracture from vertical or deviated wellbores and the propagation of a hydraulic fracture in the reservoir.This book is intended as a reference book for research engineers and advanced graduate students in petroleum or mechanical engineering. For more than forty years, hydraulic fracturing has been employed to enhance the production of oil and gas from underground reservoirs.
