As my research is about reservoir simulation, it would be good to go over the fundamentals of the standard reservoir simulation. What is it? Why people need it? What are its key physical principles that reservoir simulation is based on? What are the uses of it? It is important to understand those basics before using it. And it is even more important to present it in a fun and simple way!
Why do we need simulation? Essentially, we want to better take control of something. A model is a replica of the reality with respect to things that you are working on. You simulate the actual practice by playing around with the model. Just like to simulate the actual horse-riding using a horse simulator, or to practice outdoor rock climbing using the artificial climbing wall in the gym! All types of movements needed in outdoor climbing can be learned at the gym. Continue reading
