    • Determination of reservoir permeability from repeated induction logging 

      Tobola, David Philip (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1988)
      The usual objective of well logging is to determine the physical properties of underground formations and the nature of the fluids contained within the pore space. Porosity and fluid saturations are needed to estimate ...
    • Effect of strain rates from 10⁻² to 10 S⁻¹ in triaxial compression tests on three rocks 

      Blanton, Thomas Lindsay (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1976)
      Room-temperature, compression tests at strain rates from 10⁻² to 10 s⁻¹ are run on Charcoal Granodiorite to 0.45 GPa confining pressure and on Berea Sandstone and Indiana Limestone to 0.25 GPa confining pressure. For each ...
    • An experimental study of hydraulic fracture propagation in layered rock 

      Teufel, Lawrence William (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1979)
      Laboratory hydraulic facture experiments are conducted on monolithologic and dilithologic layered rock specimens as a function of interfacial normal stress to determine the relative influence of the interfacial shear ...
    • Performance of geologic material under hydraulic stress 

      Cato, Kerry Don (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1991)
      Greater than 20,000 small and medium sized dams use excavated emergency spillway channels to handle flood flows. More than 95% of these dams have never experienced a spillway flow. However, because a great number are less ...
    • Rock property measurements and measurement techniques for low permeability cores 

      Narahara, Gene Masao (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1987)
      The advancement of technology in producing tight gas sands requires not only the rock property measurements, but also, the advancement of measurement techniques. In low permeability cores, conventional techniques for ...
    • Semibrittle creep of selected crustal rocks at 1000 MPa 

      Hansen, Francis Dale (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1982)
      Constant stress creep experiments have been conducted on Westerly granite, Quadrant orthoquartzite, Sioux quartzite, and a generic diorite using a solid medium apparatus and talc assemblies. Most of the experiments were ...
    • Uniaxial and controlled-lateral strain tests on selected sedimentary rocks 

      Rigert, James Aloysius (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1980)
      Cylindrical specimens of several sandstones, carbonates, and quartz-rich siltstones, exhibiting a wide range of porosities, are deformed in a computer-controlled hydraulic loading apparatus. They are loaded with axial ...
