3D facture model

Recommended Posts

Dear Sirs,

I would like to create a 3D block model of fractures, it is possible by using some tools of rockworks?

Example, I have a block of rock with fractures oriented in different direction. I will cut this block in different horizontal slices (x-y plane) to highlight if the fractures shift in the horizontal plane in the different slices. So I have some layers with the orientation of fractures. My goal is to combine them in a 3D model, it is possible?

Thank you

Best regards

Hi Giancarlo,

Yes, you can create solid models based on either downhole fractures or just raw fracture data (e.g. x, y , z , dip-direction, dip-angle). These models may then be sliced vertically or horizontally. The basic idea behind the modeling is to determine the distance to the closest fracture for each element (voxel) within the block model.

Here's a link to a page that provides an example: http://www.rockware.com/product/featuresLo...mp;category=342

Best regards,

Jim Reed.
