3D-Permeability in Jointed Sandstone within True-triaxial Cell

The testing plan was for a study to evaluate the transport properties of the proposed sandstone specimens under steady state method to be tested within geophysical imaging true-triaxial testing set up at rock fracture dynamic facility, University of Toronto. This study was designed to measure the transport properties and seismic wave velocities of the tight jointed (β =0°, 15° and 30°) samples to be tested under a stress change of (Sv, SH, Sh) simulating various testing steps representing reservoir depletion in a very deep reservoir.
