Influence of the flow rate

In this part, we will study the influence of the source term on the flow. The source term corresponds to the flow rate in the well. We call the flow rate qwell.

The study will be led with the parameters presented on the previous parts. The only parameters that will change is the flow rate. The solver used is a solver without anisotropy, moreover the permeability will be equal to $ K=7.10 {-7} \ m^2 $.

 

In some cases with very high rate flow the solutions obtained are not real because the Darcy low is valid only for small velocities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Influence of the flow rate on the velocity

Velocity field for the case : $qwell=0.5 \ m^3/s$

Velocity field for the case : $qwell=1 \ m^3/s$

Velocity field for the case : $qwell=10 \ m^3/s$

An increasing of the flow rate induce an increasing in the velocity magnitude.

Influence of the flow rate on the pressure field

Pressure field for the case : $qwell=0.5 \ m^3/s$

Pressure field for the case : $qwell=1\ m^3/s$

Pressure field for the case : $qwell=10 \ m^3/s$

An increase in flow rate induce an increase of the negative pressure.
