Abstract

With the advance of high-performance computing (HPC) the use of CFD software has become common in research in Fluid Dynamics, either to obtain the numerical solutions of differential equations that model the various systems or the dynamics for viewing and analyzing data obtained in the simulations. In this work we look to benchmarking between two distinct two-phase flows from two geometrically different wells through the analysis of their respective accumulated volumes of non-wetting fluid in the outflow. Three simulations were performed, for each set of wells, both during the same interval of time and under the same pressure gradient. The OpenFOAM software and Finite Volume Method for solving differential equations were used.
