The simulations

In this part of the project, three-phase flow simulations are carried out using a simple geometry which represents oil wedged into the cap of a cave. Simulated with Fluent and Jadim with the VOF method, the results are analyzed and compared in order to conclude on the accuracy of the recovery method.

It is important to note that these results are only relevant for this particular geometry and can not be applied to the geometry of the Tarim Basin. They will allow us to compare Jadim and Fluent and will then be used by Schlumberger to validate the automata software for the gas injection recovery method.
