Md Motiur Rahman
I am indebted to the Cornell Fracture Group, Cornell University, NY, USA, for permission to use their FRANC 3D and HYFRANC 3D boundary element based fracture analysis software. I am also indebted to Resources Engineering Systems Inc., USA for their software FRACPRO for hydraulic fracture design and optimisation. Thanks are also due to the Commonwealth of Australia for providing me with the Australian Postgraduate Award scholarship throughout this study. Last but not the least, I thank my wife
