Modification of mainframe BOAST II

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

BOAST II is a black-oil, applied-simulation tool used routinely for performing evaluation and design work in modern petroleum reservoir engineering. Personnel from the Louisiana State University Computer Science Department worked on modifying the mainframe version of this program through the simulation of two-phase flow of slightly compressible fluids in a three-dimensional porous medium. This included the construction of a FORTRAN program that uses 3-D finite elements to approximate the governing equations. The existing finite element code was adapted so that virtually any size of element could easily be incorporated into the solution scheme. This gave increased flexibility and made it ... continued below

This included the construction of a FORTRAN program that uses 3-D finite elements to approximate the governing equations. The existing finite element code was adapted so that virtually any size of element could easily be incorporated into the solution scheme. This gave increased flexibility and made it possible to utilize mesh refinement techniques. Modifications to the mainframe version also involved the development and integration of radial grid systems suitable for the investigations proposed in the project.
