Abstract

Model documentation is presented for a two-dimensional (areal) heat-transport model capable of simulating both water- and vapor-dominated geothermal reservoirs that conform with the assumptions of the model. Finite-difference techniques are used to solve for the dependent variables pressure and enthalpy. The program is designed to simulate time-dependent problems such as those associated with geothermal reservoirs undergoing exploitation, and can treat the transition from compressed water to two-phase flow. In order to simulate more complicated field problems the present program is being extended, and therefore the model described in this report is referred to as VERSION I. A listing of the computer code is included. (Woodard-USGS)
