A new apparatus for hydraulic fracturing tests, on which the seepage and force boundary conditions can be controlled strictly, is briefly introduced here. Some test results obtained by using this apparatus are presented as an example. These results were compared with theoretical results obtained from rigorous mechanical analysis to illustrate the advantage of this apparatus.
