Project Objectives

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.
