Investigating Inﬂuential Factors of the Gas Absorption Capacity in Shale Reservoirs Using Integrated Petrophysical, Mineralogical and Geochemical Experiments: A Case Study The results showed that in shale reservoirs with high maturity and high organic content that the adsorbed gas volume increases, with an increase in the contents of organic matter and
To incorporate the effects of shale formation heterogeneity in the simulation of crack paths, fracture properties of the specimens are defined as spatially random fields. A computational strategy on the basis of stochastic finite element theory is developed that allows to incorporate the effects of heterogeneity of shale rocks on
8.1 Definitions The peridynamics formulation was first developed by Silling , where he tried to overcome the limitation of current theories dealing with discontinuity, such as in fracture mechanics problems. The main argument was that the difficulty of existing theories was due to the presence of partial derivatives in the formulation
7.1 Boundary Element Method (BEM) The boundary element method has first appeared in the work of Cruse and Rizzo  for elasticity problems, but it was effectively named as BEM in the work of Brebbia and Domínguez  and represented a series of advances in comparison to the existent domain discretisation
