Abstract

During the hydraulically induced compaction of a granular layer fracture patterns arise. In numerical simulations we study how these patterns depend on the gas properties as well as on the properties of the porous medium. In particular the relation between the speed of fracture propagation and injection pressure is here studied in detail.
