Grad FF ⎡ ⎢ (W + Wp ) BF = 0 . 052 ⎢ Wp ⎢1 + ⎢ SPGp × 8 . 33 ⎣ ⎤ ⎥ ⎥ ⎥ ⎥ ⎦ (Eq.13) Where: GradFF=Gradient of Fracture Fluid (psi/ft) WBF= Weight of One Gallon of Base Frac. Fluid Wp=Weight of Proppant per Gallon of Frac.Fluid SPGp=Specific Gravity of Proppant Fig.35 Burst Design Copyright(c) 2005 by Ali Ghalambor & Boyun Guo 194 97 Fig.36 illustrates the burst load line, in generalized form for the production casing designed for hydraulic fracturing considerations. Fig.36 Burst Design Collapse Design The collapse load is supplied by the hydrostatic pressure of the heaviest mud weight the string is to be run in ,and the design factor is applied directly to this load. The resulting design line is used as in the other types of design to check and upgrad...
