The hydraulic fracturing technology is the main technical means of coalbed methane. However, it is hard to describe the fracture formation mechanism and evolution law in the process of fracturing. It caused the present studies restrict the effective mining of coalbed methane. This article is mainly study the process of fracture cracking and extending based on the angle of energy. It introduces the theory of entropy to analyse the micro defect evolution under hydraulic fracturing, and builds up the evolution model of the micro fracture number, angle, length and opening based on the theory of entropy. Then it analyses the main controlling factors of the fracture evolution. It will provide a new research approach for the law of hydraulic fracturing evolution.
Key words: Entropy theory; Hydraulic fracturing; Damage evolution


Entropy theory; Hydraulic fracturing; Damage evolution
