Hydrodynamic characterization and dimensioning of the dilatant-plastic zone around an oil well

  • T. K. Ramazanov
  • M. G. Khanbabaeva


Unsteady filtration of fluid around a well is numerically modeled in an elasto-plastic medium under the Mohr-Coulomb yield condition and unassociated flow rule. The paper presents equations to calculate porosity, stratum permeability, porous pressure, returns rate under unsteady fluid filtration and the dilatant-plastic zone dimension.
