Abstract

This paper investigates the performance of the mimetic finite difference (MFD) discretization scheme for modelling fluid flow in anisotropic porous media. We apply numerical benchmark studies on the MFD scheme to measure its accuracy when the horizontal permeability is much larger than the vertical one in a diagonal permeability tensor. We also run full-field simulations to investigate the modelling capability of this method and compare it to other advanced discretization schemes.
