Computational Methods for Fracture in Porous Media provides a self-contained presentation of new modelling techniques for simulating crack propagation in fluid-saturated porous materials. In the first chapter the author reviews the basic equations that govern fluid-saturated porous media. In chapter 2 a multi-scale approach to modelling fluid transport in joints, cracks and faults is described, in such a way that the resulting formulation allows for a sub-grid representation of the crack and the fluid flow in the crack. In chapter 3 interface elements are analyzed and their extension to the hydromechanical case presented. The flexibility of Extended Finite Element Method for non-stationary cracks is explored and their formulation for fracture in porous media described. The final chapter introduces Isogeometric finite element methods alongside with its basic features and properties. The extension to fluid-saturated media is made for both static and dynamic loading conditions. The applications of this book's content cover various fields of Engineering. Researchers in Soil and Rock mechanics can use it for simulating pore pressure generation and stress build-up for predicting earthquakes. Petroleum Engineers can use it to simulate the direction and extent of fracture propagation when pressurizing an existing crack. Environmental Engineers can simulate the transport of contaminants in rock faults or fractured salt domes. Biomedical engineers also could benefit from the applications of these methods to fracture in biologic materials. Discover new and upcoming computational techniques for simulating fracture in partially fluid-saturated porous media Learn how to couple modern computational methods with non-linear fracture mechanics with flow in porous media Understand how to simulate fracture propagation in hydraulic fracturing
