    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    New laboratory test set-ups and test procedures are described - for testing the formation of hydraulically induced fractures as well as the potential for subsequent fracture closurefrom the relase of a swelling potential. The main purpose with the tests is to provide information on fracturing stresses and whether or not the material in question possesses the potential for fracture closure.
