Title: TUNABLE MINIATURIZED PHYSICAL SUBSURFACE MODEL FOR SIMULATION AND INVERSION
Abstract:
Conventional computational simulation and inversion of subsurface flow are expensive, which is wasteful in terms of time and energy consumption. A process for implementation of mathematical techniques such as forward simulation, sensitivity analysis, and inversion to physical microstructure models for subsurface fluid simulation is disclosed. This process not only offers accurate and reliable results, but also is cost effective.
