ENERGY 223: Subsurface Flow Simulation

Numerical simulation of subsurface flow. Partial differential equations for multicomponent, multiphase flow relevant to oil/gas, carbon storage, and aquifer modeling. Detailed numerical formulation for two-phase flow systems. Finite-volume discretization, time-stepping, treatment of wells, Newton's method, linear solvers, theoretical and practical considerations. Class project. Prerequisite: CME 200, some knowledge of subsurface flow fundamentals. Knowledge of numerical methods useful but not essential.
