ABSTRACT

In the last decades, the numerical analysis has abridged the time and cost of oil extractive operations, and thus their implementation has been promoted so much that today is used to solve a large number of phenomena that occur during the extraction of hydrocarbons, not only economizing the operation, but also shedding light to the phenomenon, and helping to have a better understanding. Nevertheless in spite of the success of the applications of numerical simulations, it has been until today, looking for their optimization, because the discretization methods of the domain and the model are through meshes, which require modifying the physics of the problem so that this matches the numerical method, and not in backwards.
