    Multi-stage fracturing is an advanced drilling technology that enhances the production capabilities through maximizing the contact area of unconventional wells with the reservoir production zones. During the fracturing process, a special fluid (primarily a mixture of sand and water) is blown out at a high pressure into the shale rock formation creating channels through which hydrocarbons can easily migrate to the well. Multi-stage fracturing is a combination of fracturing and plugging processes. Fractures are made in a reversed order starting form the end of the horizontal hole. Plugs are then placed upon the completion of each stage to prevent communication between the stages. A Problem with Economic Consequences A major issue that is encountered during the fracturing process is the hydraulic communication among the stages. This is specifically a common problem in carbonate rocks as well as formations with a relatively low permeability in the direction of the fractures. In order to maximize the production and benefit of the fracturing process, an effective isolation is necessitated between the…

    Gc (i.e. interfacial fracture toughness) of the interface between Cu leadframe and EMC. They were determined by the FEM simulations using the three mentioned methods: VCCT, VCE and J-integral. The verification of simulations was performed using an analytical solution (eq. (6)). Based on the critical ERRs obtained from different specimens tested at different temperatures, the temperature dependence of the interfacial fracture toughness was investigated. The upper EMC layer of the sample was…

    Hamate Fracture A hamate fracture is a break in a small wrist bone called the hamate. The hamate is located below and between your pinky and ring fingers. It is shaped like a triangle and has a hook-like extension. There are two types of hamate fracture: Type 1. This type involves the hook part of the bone. Type 2. This type involves the body of the bone. CAUSES This condition may be caused by: A sudden injury, such as: Falling on an outstretched arm with a clenched fist.…

    The Salter-Harris classification is a radiologic classification system, developed in the 1960s, to describe fractures involving the growth plate in pediatric patients.1 It divides the fractures into five categories based on the extent of damage to the growth plate based on the mnemonic SALTER; type I: Slip or Separation of the growth plate, type II: Above the growth plate, type III: Lower than the growth plate, type IV: Through the growth plate, and type V: Raised epiphysis. Children have open…
