Title: Final Report

Abstract

This project employed a continuum approach to formulate an elastic constitutive model for Castlegate sandstone. The resulting constitutive framework for high porosity sandstone is thermodynamically sound, (i.e., does not violate the 1st and 2nd law of thermodynamics), represents known material constitutive response, and is able to be calibrated using available mechanical response data. To authenticate the accuracy of this model, a series of validation criteria were employed, using an existing mechanical response data set for Castlegate sandstone. The resulting constitutive framework is applicable to high porosity sandstones in general, and is tractable for scientists and researchers endeavoring to solve problems of practical interest.
