Based on the orthotropic physical properties of coal cleats, the fluid-solid coupling model for stress sensibility coal seams is established. The equations of the coupling model are solved by using the finite element method. The history matching for JS-3 well in Ordos basin is carried on by using the coupling model. The comparison between calculated results based on the coupling model and the measured values indicates their good agreement, which verifies the accuracy and rationality of the model. The effect of the permeability orthotropic coefficient of coal cleats on the pressure distribution in coal seams is analyzed. The results show that the pressure along the butt cleats direction increases with permeability orthotropic coefficient increasing; The pressure along the face cleats decreases with permeability orthotropic coefficient increasing between 0m~30m and 170m~200m, whereas both increases from 30m to 170m.
