Calculation results after 4 h of thermal loading for a heat transfer coefficient value of 1000 W m−2 K−1 (low thermal flux). The front color corresponds to the temperature (see legend). Each point corresponds to a crack (either tensile or shear crack). Grey uniform color corresponds to the area connected to the wellbore (penetration of hydraulic pressure and of thermal loading)
