Fracture geometries and processes in andesites at Mt Ruapehu, New Zealand: implications for the fracture modelling of the Rotokawa Geothermal Field
(Le Consortium Gocad, 2014-09-16)
Fluid flow in the high-temperature (300 C), andesite-hosted Rotokawa geothermal reservoir (Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ), New Zealand) is largely controlled by fractures and faults but their geometries are still poorly ...
Rock properties of Greywacke Basement hosting geothermal reservoirs, New Zealand: preliminary results
(Stanford University, 2014-02-24)
Geothermal resources in New Zealand are known to be hosted in greywacke basement rocks. Fluid flow in these reservoirs and the wells that access them is controlled by fracture networks. As such it is of vital importance ...
A damage mechanics approach to modeling failure in Greywacke rock
(New Zealand Geothermal Workshop, 2014)
Fracture networks within greywacke basement rocks often control fluid flow in geothermal reservoirs in New Zealand. Thermal, hydrological, chemical, and mechanical processes affect the evolution of these fracture networks. ...
Strain rate effects on the failure characteristics of excised human skin
(The 9th International Conference on the Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials, 2014)
Skin is a complex, multi-layered material which exhibits non-linear, anisotropic and viscoelastic behaviour. Its structure is complex and can be broadly divided into three main layers: the epidermis, the dermis and ...
