Paper Title:
Micromechanical Model for Simulating Hydraulic Fractures of Rock
  Abstract

A numerical model is developed to study hydraulic fracturing in permeable and heterogeneous rocks, coupling with the flow and failure process. The effects of flow and in-situ stress ratio on fracture, material homogeneity and breakdown pressure are specifically studied.
