Abstract
A computational micromechanical analysis based on zero thickness interface elements for modelling solid prediction in hydrocarbon reservoir sandstones is presented. The model is capable of modelling localization of deformation, disintegration and cracking of cemented rock formation that leads to initiation and continuous sand production during hydrocarbon production and reservoir depletion. Using only few physical parameters, the model is calibrated at the macroscale by reproducing the typical b...
