  • Resume:
  • Faults are 3D zones of deformed rock that play a major role in controlling fluid flow in reservoirs. Fault
    zones are difficult to characterize: outcrops give limited view and seismic is limited by resolution and
    image quality. We propose an integrated approach to study fault zone evolution and its impact on seismic.
    We model fault zones using the discrete-element method (DEM). The finite strain of these models is used
    to condition seismic properties. Finally, seismic imaging of the DEM analogues is performed.
