Thesis Proposals:
1 - Defining a better heuristic for the Newton method in reservoir simulation
Typical reservoir simulation involves the repeated solution in time of highly non-linear
systems of equations as several quantities, such as relative permeability, capillary
pressure, elastic storage, depend on the unknown solution at the current time. The
Newton method, on its side, is an iterative scheme requiring the solution of a sequence
of linearized system at each step, which are typically solved through preconditioned
iterative methods, e.g., algebraic multigrid (AMG).
In principle, since the systems change at every Newton step, the most conservative strategy
is that of setting-up a new preconditioner for every non-linear solve. However, since the
preconditioner set-up stage could be quite expensive, a more efficient alternative could
be that of computing a new preconditioner or updating an existing one only when the system
matrix changes significantly.
The present proposal focuses on studying optimal choices for preconditioner reset or update
in reservoir simulation. The thesis will be carried out in collaboration with ENI and will
involve an extensive use of Echelon, the ENI-proprietary reservoir simulation model, on
modern parallel computers. The student will learn how to run an up-to-date reservoir simulator
on real or realistic field, will learn how to work on a parallel computer using a load-leveler
and finally will learn the basis of parallel programming and numerical methods.

2 - Improving the iterative solution of linear systems arising from reservoir simulation
models
Reservoir simulation software requires the solution in time of several non-linear systems
of the equations, which are typically solved with the Newton method. Newton, in turn,
involves the solution of a sequence of large and sparse linear systems which are very
often solved through algebraic multigrid (AMG). Though being extremely efficient, the time
spent for the AMG solve accounts for up to 90% of the total simulation time in real world
problems, so that it is of paramount importance increasing its efficiency.
For instance, Echelon, the reservoir simulation software used in ENI, relies on the
linear solver in the GAMPACK library which guarantees excellent performance. However,
other solver packages are available offering promising improvements in the context of AMG,
such as aggressive coarsening techniques, extended and long-range prolongations,
filtering or advanced smoothers.
The aim of this thesis is exploring the effectiveness of these approaches, currently
implemented in other packages such as
Hypre or Chronos and evaluate their impact
on real world reservoir and geomechanical models.
The thesis will be carried out in collaboration with ENI and will involve the use of
GAMPACK and other linear solvers on modern parallel computers. The student will learn
how to use and customize state-of-the-art parallel linear solvers, will learn how to work
on a parallel computer using a load-leveler and, finally, will learn the basis of parallel
programming.
