Sketch of the stress state rotation. The transformed stress is obtained through (i) rotation of principal stresses from 30° along the vertical axis to be in the global coordinate system (Y south–north, X west–east, Z up–down); (ii) rotation of 40° along the vertical axis to align with the dip direction of the wellbore (Y2 horizontal axis aligned with dip direction, X2 horizontal axis perpendicular to dip direction, Z vertical axis); (iii) rotation of 30° along X2 to be in the wellbore axis coordinate system (axis parallel to the dip direction of the plane perpendicular to the wellbore axis, noted as “d”, axis parallel to the strike direction of the plane perpendicular to the wellbore axis, noted as “s”)
