Abstract:

The report discusses the analytical expressions for the strains and displacements at the surface of a circular hole in an infinite transversely isotropic elastic medium due to general stresses at infinity. This solution permits the influence of rock anisotropy to be considered in the stress-relief overcoring techniques.
