Short description of project:

In this thesis we wish to implement and simulate both the case of no vertical ow of the uids, vertical equilibrium assumption, and the case where the uids may ow vertically. We will refer to the latter as the structured vertical velocity approximation. The advantage of assuming that the uids are in vertical equilibrium is that we can save a lot of computational time, but intuitively the nonequilibrium model gives a more correct picture of the ow in the reservoir.
