Reservoir Simulation Tests the Limits of Built-in Post Processors

As computing power has increased, the volume of simulation data that reservoir engineers must work with has gone up exponentially. Working with so much important data, it’s critical that engineers not miss anything. Vast amounts of money could be wasted if data is overlooked. And with all that data, it’s very likely some could be. For instance, before an oil company goes to the expense of producing a field, reservoir […]

Plot3D, CGNS and the Standardization of Data File Formats

Plot3D is a standard file format used for storing grid and results data in CFD simulations. This standardization of formats is a big plus for engineers, allowing them more choices in tailoring their solutions to a project.  Taking a page from another industry, where the belief that owning the format means owning the market—the cell phone industry still suffers from these proprietary practices, which, as we know, rarely work out […]
