Abstract

Recent research directed toward the development of a computer simulation model for fractured type geothermal reservoirs and a research project aimed at aiding the development of "supercritical" geothermal reservoir system at Tohoku University is briefly described. Outline of a numerical model (Fracsim-3D) developed for designing hydraulically induced fracture type geothermal reservoirs is presented. Then, the potential of creating microcrack network in supercritical rock masses is demonstrated for the energy extraction from deepseated rock masses.
