TOUGH2 is an integral finite differences numerical simulator for non-isothermal multiphase flow in fractured porous media, which can manage complex spatial discretizations. Numerical simulation accuracy is affected, among other things, by grid resolution. Increasing the grid resolution requires computational and operating costs depending on the number of nodes and variables processed. The complexity of the management of the model increases when unstructured grids and local refinement are used… CONTINUE READING
