"A software package for the simulation of fluid flows in discrete fracture networks with vugs"
Blonsky A.V.

A software package for the mathematical simulation of fluid flows in discrete fracture networks is proposed. The mathematical model of flows is analyzed, a brief description of the computational algorithms is given, and the features of software implementation are formulated. The structure of the developed software package is considered, a number of similar software packages are discussed, and their differences from the proposed one are shown. A number of model problems are solved to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed mathematical model, algorithms, and software implementation.

Keywords: discrete fracture networks, multiphase flows.
