The objective of the project is to create an innovative user-friendly software prototype (called DomAnal) that can be used by operators to characterize flow properties of stimulation domains, diagnose well stimulations, and provide options to improve well stimulations. DomAnal shall be a fast analytic screening model, with appropriate approximations, rather than a slow completely rigorous numerical model, such as finite elements.
The software screening tool, DomAnal, developed during this project and the associated documentation can be found here.
The software program and two benchmark input files are available on the RPSEA Dropbox at the link above. This RPSEA project is complete, and there is no formal arrangement to maintain the software. If there are questions regarding DomAnal, bugs in the software, or other improvements are desired, this must be negotiated privately between the user and Higgs-Palmer Technologies. Please contact Ian Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
