The 3D geomechanical-numerical modelling of the in-situ stress state aims at a continuous description of the stress state in a subsurface volume. It requires observed stress information within the model volume that are used as a reference. Once the modelled stress state is in agreement with the observed reference stress data the model is assumed to provide the continuous stress state in its entire volume. The modelled stress state is fitted to the reference stress data records by adaptation of the displacement boundary conditions. This process is herein referred to as calibration. Depending on the amount of available stress data records and the complexity of the model the manual calibration is a lengthy process of trial-and-error modelling and analysis until best-fit boundary conditions are found.

The Fast Automatic Stress Tensor Calibration (FAST Calibration) is a Python function that facilitates and speeds up this calibration process. By using a linear regression it requires only three model scenarios with different boundary conditions. The stress states from the three model scenarios at the locations of the reference stress data records are extracted. The differences between the modelled and observed stress states are used for a linear regression that allows to compute the displacement boundary conditions required for the best-fit modelled stress state. If more than one reference stress state is provided, the influence of the individual observed stress data records on the best-fit boundary conditions can be weighted.
