Setup the system

At the beginning of the simulation, we compute the non-dynamic variables such as
  • the pore volumes, pv,
  • the transmissibilities, T,
  • the discrete differential operators, div and grad,
  • the gravity force contribution, dz,
function s = setupSystem(G, rock, bc, param)
   cf = G.cells.faces(:,1);
   nf = G.faces.num;
   nc = G.cells.num;

Compute pore volumes

   s.pv = poreVolume(G, rock);
   s.poro = rock.poro;

Compute the half, and then the full, transmissibilities.

   T = computeTrans(G, rock);
   cf = G.cells.faces(:,1);
   nf = G.faces.num;
   T  = 1 ./ accumarray(cf, 1./T, [nf, 1]);
   s.T = T;

Set up the discrete divergence operator, div. It sums up all signed faces' values in each cell.

   N = double(G.faces.neighbors);
   index = 1:nf';
   faces1 = N(:, 1) ~= 0;
   faces2 = N(:, 2) ~= 0;
   C1  = sparse(index(faces1), N(faces1, 1), ones(nnz(faces1),1), nf, nc);
   C2  = sparse(index(faces2), N(faces2, 2), ones(nnz(faces2),1), nf, nc);
   C = C1 - C2;
   s.div  = @(x)C'*x;

Set up the discrete gradient operator, grad. It is an operator from cell values to face values. We compute the differences of cell values across each face.

   index = 1:nf;
   interior = prod(N, 2)~=0;

   C1_interior = sparse(index(interior), N(interior, 1), ones(nnz(interior), 1), nf, nc);
   C2_interior = sparse(index(interior), N(interior, 2), ones(nnz(interior), 1), nf, nc);

Compute the boundary contribution to the gradient operator. They corresponds to the external faces where Dirichlet conditions are given. We are careful to use the correct signs.

   is_dirichlet_faces1 = N(bc.dirichlet.faces, 1) ~= 0;
   is_dirichlet_faces2 = ~is_dirichlet_faces1;

   dirichlet_faces1 = bc.dirichlet.faces(is_dirichlet_faces1);
   dirichlet_faces2 = bc.dirichlet.faces(is_dirichlet_faces2);

   C1_exterior = sparse(index(dirichlet_faces1), ...
                        N(dirichlet_faces1, 1), ...
                        ones(numel(dirichlet_faces1), 1), nf, nc);
   C2_exterior = sparse(index(dirichlet_faces2), ...
                        N(dirichlet_faces2, 2), ...
                        ones(numel(dirichlet_faces2), 1), nf, nc);

The gradient operator is the sum of internal and boundary contributions. For boundary faces, if they are Dirichlet faces, then we use the Dirichlet value to compute the difference, otherwise the gradient is set to zero, which corresponds to a no flow condition.

   C = C1_interior + C1_exterior - (C2_interior + C2_exterior);

   pressure_bc = sparse(nf, 1);
   pressure_bc(dirichlet_faces1) = - bc.dirichlet.pressure(is_dirichlet_faces1);
   pressure_bc(dirichlet_faces2) = + bc.dirichlet.pressure(is_dirichlet_faces2);

   s.p_grad = @(p)(C*p + pressure_bc);

   s.grad = @(val, bc_val)(grad(val, bc_val, nf, C, ...
                                is_dirichlet_faces1, dirichlet_faces1, ...
                                is_dirichlet_faces2, dirichlet_faces2));

Set up the gravity term.

   z = G.cells.centroids(:, 3);
   fz = G.faces.centroids(:, 3);
   s.dz = s.grad(z, fz);

We define the function that return values on faces using cells' values and upwind directions. For boundary faces when the upwind direction require to take value from the outside, if the face is a Dirichlet face, then we take the Dirichlet value otherwise we take the value of the neighboring cell.

   s.upwindFaceValues = @(flag, val, bc_val) upwindFaceValues(flag, val, bc_val, N, interior, ...
                                                     dirichlet_faces2, dirichlet_faces1,  bc, nf, ...
                                                     nc);

We define the function that return values on faces defined as the average of neighboring cells. For boundary faces, we use the value of the neighboring cell if it is not a Dirichlet cell or the average of this value and the Dirichlet face value. The Dirichlet face values are specified with bc_bal.

   s.averageFaceValues = @(val, bc_val) averageFaceValues(val, bc_val, N, interior, ...
                                                     dirichlet_faces2, dirichlet_faces1,  bc, nf, ...
                                                     nc);

   s.N = N;
   s.G = G;
end
