We present a rigorous validation of the analytical Amadei solution for the stress concentration around an arbitrarily orientated borehole in general anisotropic elastic media. First, we revisit the theoretical framework of the Amadei solution and present analytical insights that show that the solution does indeed contain all special cases of symmetry, contrary to previous understanding, provided that the reduced strain coefficients β11β11 and β55β55 are not equal. It is shown from theoretical considerations and published experimental data that the β11β11 and β55β55 are not equal for realistic rocks. Second, we develop a 3D finite element elastic model within a hybrid analytical–numerical workflow that circumvents the need to rebuild and remesh the model for every borehole and material orientation. Third, we show that the borehole stresses computed from the numerical model and the analytical solution match almost perfectly for different borehole orientations (vertical, deviated and horizontal) and for several cases involving isotropic, transverse isotropic and orthorhombic symmetries. It is concluded that the analytical Amadei solution is valid with no restriction on the borehole orientation or the symmetry of the elastic anisotropy.
► We investigate borehole stresses in anisotropic media.
► A rigorous validation of the controversial Amadei solution is provided. Theoretical doubts about the Amadei solution are rebutted.
► The first numerical validation via finite element method is presented.
► A novel hybrid analytical–numerical work flow for deviated boreholes is proposed.
