This e-lecture presents a workflow to simulate correlated Discrete Fracture Networks (DFN) constrained by statistics and microseismic data. We investigate the possibility to analyze microseismic data using the 3D Hough transform and to constraint the Discrete Fracture Network simulation. Then, we detail a sequential pseudo-genetic DFN simulation workflow that produces a hierachical DFN. It uses mechanical proxies inspired from mechanics to sample parameter distribution laws and to efficiently organize simulated fractures in space. This work has been funded by the RING consortium (https://www.ring-team.org).
