This paper introduces new techniques for interactive piecewise flattening of parametric 3-D surfaces, leading to a non-distorted, hence realistic, texture mapping. Cuts are allowed on the mapped texture and we make a compromise between discontinuities and distortions. These techniques are based on results from differential geometry, more precisely on the(More)

The temperature dependence and the ouabain sensitivity of Na,K-ATPase was examined in the nephron of normal, cold-exposed, and hibernating jerboas. The transport and hydrolytic activity of renal Na,K-ATPase displayed similar temperature dependence in rats and normal jerboas. Cold-resistance of Na,K-ATPase appeared in cold-exposed jerboas and further(More)
Changes in activity and abundance of renal Na,K-ATPase were evaluated during cold exposure and hibernation of the jerboa Jaculus orientalis by measuring the hydrolytic activity, the number of units and the transport activity of Na,K-ATPase in isolated nephron segments. As compared to controls, jerboas exposed to cold (6 °C) for 4–5 weeks displayed mild(More)
Mesh generation becomes a crucial step in reservoir flow simulation of new generation. The mesh must faithfully represent the architecture of the reservoir and its heterogeneity. In (Flandrin et al. in IJNME 65(10):1639–1672, 2006) a three-dimensional hybrid mesh model was proposed to capture the radial characteristics of the flow around the wells. In this(More)
A great challenge for flow simulators of new generation is to gain more accuracy at well proximity within complex geological structures. For this purpose, a new approach based on hybrid mesh modeling was proposed in 2D in [1]. In this hybrid mesh, the reservoir is described by a structured quadrilateral mesh and drainage areas around wells are represented(More)
In this paper, we introduce a new method to generate a hybrid mesh from a CPG (Corner Point Geometry) reservoir grid and a radial mesh around a well. The method is an extension of the approach proposed in [1] to the case of CPG grids with high level of deformation. This ensures a fully functional mesh generation for realistic cases. The main idea is first(More)
Under the context of subterranean formation modeling using finite volume methods, the computational domain is a basin, a reservoir, or an underground CO2 storage site. Such a domain has a layered structure and is geometrically described by its layer limits called horizons and random disruption of layers called faults. Horizons and faults are both(More)
In the domain of oil exploration, geostatistical methods aim at simulating petrophysical properties in a 3D grid model of reservoir. Generally, only a small amount of cells are populated with properties. Roughly speaking, the question is: which properties to give to cell c, knowing the properties of n cells at a given distance from c? Obviously, the(More)
Reservoir models are essential if we need to clearly understand the fossil resources and, hence, to make better use of them. Feeding these models with physical properties on the basis of wells data is a key step in their construction. Line-support (LS) grid is the most popular grid in reservoir engineering, it is massively used for reservoir simulations. In(More)
