Introduction

As the last task for students of HYdepartment, before the final internship, the BEI is a long project allowing last year engineer students to work together for six weeks on an industrial project. 

As a result of a mutual interest, our team has joined the SimKarst project initiated in 2012 by Pr. Han Pingchou, PKU, and Bernard Montaron, Schlumberger China. The ultimate objective of the Simkarst project is to design a 3D reservoir simulator that can make realistic multi-phase flow simulations (gas, water, and oil) in large (20 x 20 km) and complex cave networks made of thousands of caves distributed in 3D space and connected according to a given pattern.

This project is our contribution in order to reach the ultimate objective.
