Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference presentation/ephemerapeer-review


This report analyzes existing numerical models developed in recent years. Also reviewed is the state-of-the-art of in situ combustion from the point of experimental modeling and some field operations. A comparative evaluation of existing in situ combustion numerical models helped identifying shortcomings of each model and detect missing links. A discussion is presented of various mechanisms involved in in situ combustion operations and points out shortcomings of present experimental techniques. Guidelines are provided for experiments to be conducted in order to provide data for an ideal in situ combustion simulator.
