Conclusions

Computer simulation shows that monitoring of the stress state of columns on the basis of emissional memory effects in the near-borehole rock requires a priori geological information on the orientation, dimensions, and density of the initial microcracks. Conditions for the interpretation of monitoring data are favorable in the presence of a system of initial microcracks oriented at an angle ϕ to the axis of the column, where 15°≤ϕ≤40° or 50°≤ϕ≤75°. The hydrosensor pressure Pgr obtained as a result of monitoring is directly proportional to the axial (vertical) stress in the column. The possibility of using this method in the case of random microcracking and in conditions when the crack system is oriented at ϕ = 0–15°, 40–50°, or 75–90° requires further — primarily experimental — investigation.
