Description

In our current study “Seismic shear wave anisotropy in cracked rocks and an application to hydraulic fracturing,” we develop an effective approach for the elastic wave-scattering theory to accurately calculate anisotropic properties in the presence of single and/or multiple fracture sets. Two specific models, the equivalent aligned crack system (EACS) and the equivalent orthogonal crack system (EOCS), are considered for the calculations. The EACS generates significant anisotropy while the EOCS exhibits weak anisotropy due to the interaction of cracks with different orientations.
