Abstract
The cahnges of the stress regime in the natural rocks often cause the fracture shear displacements, which lead (due to fracture surface roughness) to fracture dilation. The simple approach for simulating this natural process is proposed. The method incorporates the experimental measuring of the real fracture surface topography, mathematical modeling of the synthetic fracture lateral slipping (shear dilation). Mathematical model is based on the spectral synthesis method and accounts for the fractal nature of the fracture surfaces. It is shown that the topography of the lengthy fracture surface in the natural rocks can be properly characterized with the data obtained from the small fragments of these surfaces. The algorithm for computing and predicting the fracture dilation and shear dilation angles in the natural rocks as functions of shear offset is proposed.
