Abstract
During the oil recovery a hole is drilled, the sandstone is left unsupported next to the cavity and disloged sand grains can enter the oil recovery system. This process is called sand production and several problems may arise due to that process, as clogging up of the well or damage to the well equipment. The study of sand production process is of paramout importance for safe and economical hydrocarbon production. The majority of numerical models to predict sand production that have been used t...
