Description

2D/3D Boundary Element Programming in Petroleum Engineering and Geomechanics, Volume 72 is designed to make it easy for researchers, engineers and students to begin writing boundary element programs. This reference covers the fundamentals, theoretical developments, programming and applications. Both fluid flow through porous media and structural problems are used for coding exercises. Included computer programs may be used as starting codes; after modifications, they can be applied to real world problems. The book covers topics around mesh generation, 3D boundary element coding, and interface coding for controlling mesh generation, and plotting results.

Key Features

  • Includes interactive 2D and 3D coding exercises that readers can modify based on need
  • Features research on the most recent developments in indirect and dual boundary element methods
  • Contains case studies showing examples and applications of the theories presented in the book

Readership

Petroleum geologists and engineers; graduate students in petroleum geology and engineering. Oil and gas industry
