A variational phase-field model for hydraulic fracturing in poro-elastic media Yoshioka, Keita


In this talk, we will first go through the construction of a variational phase-field based coupled hydro-mechanical model in poor-elastic media. We will then revisit the problem of a single hydraulic fracture propagating in an infinite impermeable medium in order to justify our coupling strategy. Finally, we will discuss how a phase-field description of a system of cracks can be leveraged to model flow in a fractured porous medium.
