Surface based modelling
Petrophysical properties are represented mesh free by using NURBS surfaces.
State-of-the-art numerical technology
Dynamic mesh optimisation, high order methods, novel discretizations, resilient against ‘poor’ quality meshes, etc.
IC-FERST is an open source multiphase simulation tool based on Fluidity that is able to solve the Darcy and the Navier-Stokes equations in 2 and 3 dimensions. It uses dynamic unstructured mesh optimisation and has been parallelized using MPI and also has been tested on the U.K. national super computer Archer. IC-FERST has been used for the following scientific areas: Porous media and inertia dominated flows, interfacial tension flows, viscous fingering, flooding and rock fracturing.
