In this work, Babu and Odeh's model for estimating flow rate from partially penetrating systems is studied. A VBA code is written in order to simulate the model and its results are compared against simulations using Eclipse Software. Sensitivity to different parameters is analyzed.

The results obtained are compared against Eclipse runs, it is observed that the model is reasonably accurate.

It is concluded that the model is accurate within its simplistic assumptions, but it is in these same assumptions that it might yield very different results than reality itself.
