Poroelastoplastic Analysis of Factors Controlling Sand

Jun 29, 2008The prediction of sand production is critical to the development of effective sand prevention and control strategies. However, sand production is a complicated process and many factors may affect it. In unconsolidated formations, the formation of stable arches around a perforation is widely believed to inhibit sand production [1, 2, 3].

Paper: The Variable Rate of Sand Production Captured by an

Abstract: An analytical model for the rate of sand production from cylindrical cavities has been calibrated on laboratory tests, and used for prediction of sand production under field-like conditions. The model is based on the assumption that sand production is driven by erosion from plastified material around the cavity. The model predicts, in agreement with field observations, that sand

This paper examines the hydro-mechanical aspect of the sand production problem and sets the basic frame of the corresponding mathematical modelling. Accordingly, piping and surface erosion effects are studied on the basis of mass balance and particle transport considerations as well as Darcy's law.

How does sand form?

Black sand comes from eroded volcanic material such as lava, basalt rocks, and other dark-colored rocks and minerals, and is typically found on beaches near volcanic activity. Black-sand beaches are common in Hawaii, the Canary Islands, and the Aleutians. The by-products of living things also play an important part in creating sandy beaches.
