Abstract

Field data-based simulations of geologic systems require much computational time because of their mathematical complexity and the often desired large scales in space and time. To conduct accurate simulations in an acceptable time period, methods to reduce runtime are required. A parallelization approach is attractive because fast multi-processor clusters are nowadays readily available. Here we report on our recent efforts to parallelize our multiphysics code CSMP ++ (Complex System Modelling Platform). In particular, we describe a parallel finite element-finite volume method for multi-phase fluid flow in heterogeneous porous media. We take a domain partitioning approach where the finite elem..
