Confrontation of the numerical results and of the logging images. a Numerical results were transformed to logging-like images. The color intensity corresponds to the distance between the boundary of the wellbore and the center of the wellbore, after drilling, for case C, with zero fluid pressure in the wellbore. θn is the angle measured from the direction of maximum stress. b Electrical microimage (extracted from the image presented in Fig. 2). The azimuthal origin for numerical results was adjusted manually for qualitative comparison (θl and θn scales have not the same origin)
