Conference paper


Drilling a borehole in saturated geotechnical materials often results in the excavation disturbed zone constituted by the original porous matrix and the fractures. In order to study the hydro-mechanical behaviors of such double-porosity medium, the analytical solution to the hollow cylinder subject to axisymmetric load is derived with Laplace transform. Emphases have been placed on the inter-porosity behaviors in terms of transport coefficient between the matrix and fractures and the results show a higher value of transport coefficient will accelerate the dissipation in the matrix while increase the pore pressure significantly in the fractures due to the fluid from the matrix.
