- The study reported here had as its main objective a determination of the feasibility of physical scale models as a way to confirm mathematical models and to explore fundamental behavior of hydraulically-fractured hot dry rock reservoirs. Included in the study are: similitude analyses, based on full-scale data, simplified mathematical models, and physical reasoning, formulation of scaling laws from the similitude analyses, preliminary determination of the processes and phenomena that can be reliably studied in scale model tests, and recommended test program to implement the results of the study. Many of the major studies conducted in hot dry rock reservoir engineering were reviewed and evaluated in the course of meeting the objectives of this study.
