The problem of heat extraction by circulating water in a fracture embedded in hot dry rock is formulated as an integral equation solution. The mathematical model involves solving a heat transport equation in fracture and a heat diffusion equation in the infinite domain geothermal reservoir. The need to model the infinite domain is eliminated by the use of Green's function. Both two- and three-dimensional problems are formulated in this paper. Numerical implementation is given in two-dimension problems only.
