Subject: Hybrid Grid generation for reservoir fluid flow simulation
Located 10kms (6miles) from Paris, the Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP)
is a French industrial research, education, and information center active
in the fields of oil, natural gas, and automobiles. The mission of the IFP
is to develop innovative technologies that will allow sustainable growth of
the hydrocarbon and automobile industries and preserve the environment.
Research and Development (R&D) at the IFP is applied and by vocation,
covering every technical field related to oil and natural gas, their
derivatives and substitutes: exploration, drilling, production, refining,
petrochemicals, internal combustion engines and the rational use of energy,
together with the associated aspects of environmental protection. This
applied research is however backed up by substantial fundamental research
which is vital for the continued development of the IFP's scientific
assets, and consequently, of its long term future (for more information
about IFP see http://www.ifp.fr ).
The proposed work is related to a research program held at the IFP on
multiphase fluid flow simulation in porous media aiming to optimise
reservoir oil production.
Grid generation and management is a key step in such kinds of simulation.
Recently the IFP has proposed an original hybrid grid modelling methodology
for more accurate reservoir simulation. This approach has been successfully
developed and tested in the 2.5D case. The retained candidate will join an
active research team in charge of the extension of this hybrid modelling
into full 3D, with tests and validation. More specifically he/she will be
involved with the geometrical aspects of this 3D extension related to grid
generation and management.
The applicant should have a recent Ph. D. and some experience working with
grid generation and/or computational geometry and should be familiar with
programming in C++ and the Unix environment. The salary will be of about
2200 Euros/month. The duration is from 12 to 18 months, starting as soon as
