Frictional Mechanics

We use specific custom-built equipment to study the frictional properties of the joints along with the effect of chemical reaction, fluid pressure and temperature variations. This set of equipment ranges from direct shear testing machine coupled with hydraulic measurements for large samples to X-ray transparent direct shear system for small samples.

Hydraulic Fracturing

Our laboratory facilities and in-house simulators allow us to address various facets of hydraulic fracture treatments from lab to field scale. This includes hydraulic fracture initiation, mixed-mode fracturing, pressure dependent leakoff (PDL) and proppant placement.
