Simulation of Fluid Flow Through Porous Rocks on Modern GPUs

  title={Simulation of Fluid Flow Through Porous Rocks on Modern GPUs},
  author={Eirik O. Aksnes},
It is important for the petroleum industry to investigate how fluids flow inside the complicated geometries of porous rocks, in order to improve oil production. The lattice Boltzmann method can be used to calculate the porous rock’s ability to transport fluids (permeability). However, this method is computationally intensive and hence begging for High Performance Computing (HPC). Modern GPUs are becoming interesting and important platforms for HPC. In this thesis, we show how to implement the… CONTINUE READING
