Insights Into Rates of Fracture Growth and Sealing From a Model for Quartz Cementation in Fractured Sandstones

This paper, published in the GSA Bulletin, represents the outcome of a long standing research collaboration between Geocosm and the FRAC group at the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas-Austin. Geocosm’s Prism2D model features prominently in the the paper, which may be downloaded using this link. A new model accounts for crystal growth patterns and internal textures in quartz…
