  • Hey Dilan,

    You would call the file “MESH” and copy it into the directory with your other TOUGH input files. Make sure your main TOUGH input file does not contain an ELEME or CONNE block. Otherwise, it’ll write the information from those blocks over the file you generate once you attempt to run a simulation.

    • Mikey Hannon 

      Here are the contents of Meshmaker (This makes a radial grid with radius 224m and depth 10m, 

          0.0e00    5.0e-2    7.0e-2                                                   
         30          1.0e2    7.0e-2

      I fail to  understand why RADII
         5.001e2  (500.1 ) is mentioned here, Wht is the logic through which this value is inputted in the meshmaker file?

      someone please shed some light on this??

  • I see.  I misunderstood your first question.  I now understand that you were attempting to generate a MESH file using meshmaker.  In order to run this, you will need to create an input file with a title line, followed by a line beginning with the MESHM (the meshmaker keyword).  After that, you'll paste the contents you provided in your previous message.  At the end of this, you'll leave a blank line after 1.0e01.  On the following line you'll enter the keyword ENDFI, which informs TOUGH that you won't be running a simulation.  Once you run this file, you should receive a file called MESH containing the mesh you're trying to generate.

    It looks like this will create elements with radii of 0.005 m, followed by one with a radius of 0.007 m (perhaps a well casing?) followed by 30 logarithmically spaced cylindrical elements out to 100 m, followed by a single element from spanning 100 m to 500.1 m.  The reason for the final radius (500.1 m) may be to stipulate a Dirichlet boundary at a location far from your injection well.  If you wanted to ensure that the outer extend of your reservoir maintains its initial conditions far from the injector, you'll make the volume of the final element (between 100 m to 500.1 m) very large in the ELEME list.  But I really can't be certain the intentions of the inputs.

    You can find more details about setting up meshmaker in the TOUGH Manual (Appendix F, pg. 177).

    • Mikey Hannon Oh thank you so much for the detailed reply

      i have read the manual and i know the purpose of 500.1 and 100 now, but one question which is perplexing me is :

      How does this meshmaker file create a mesh with Radius of 224m ?

      it is stated in tutorial and test file that this meshmaker entries create a cylindrical grid with radius 224m and depth 10m

      i understand depth, 10 

      i don't understand, how radius 224 m is formed ? i am perplexed....!!!!😥🥶

    • telegramboy I can't recall if the the location of the central node for the last element (from 100 m to 500.1 m) will be located halfway between the two boundaries (or at (100 + 500.1)/2 = 300.05 m) or if it'll be logarithmically centered between the two boundaries.  If the latter, the location comes out as approximately 224.0 m (= 10^( 0.5*(log(100) + log(500.1)) ) ).  One way to tell for sure is to generate the mesh with this input (using the procedure I described in my previous comment) and check the X value of the final element in the ELEME block.  I'd be curious to see which it would be, so let me know once you run it.

    • Mikey Hannon Damn right ...223.6m You are a genius man...thanks a ton for this mighty help

      here is the meshmaker file i ran...exactly 223.6~224m

    • Mikey Hannon its exactly logarithmic value mean

      However, I need one final advice from you

      How can I visualize this mesh, Is there any software, utility, or do I have to code it myself?

      a few pointers..please..

    • telegramboy That's a long answer, but you can get a good start here.  For simpler meshes like this one, "coding it yourself" isn't so bad, depending on your fluency with a scripting language like MATLAB or Python.

  • I used the reported input for MeshMaker to build the grid using the standard TOUGH2 V.2.0  internal grid generator (MESHM keyword in  TOUGH2 input file).

    Actually the produced MESH file is different than that generated by MeshMaker:

    Looking also at the grid info printed in the standard TOUGH2 output, it seems that the grid built by TOUGH2 is actually representing what was intended, i.e. a logarithmic grid from 0.07 m till the radius of 100.0 m, and then a single element from 100.0 m to 500.1 m, with the node at a radius of 300.05 m.

    So, apparently MeshMaker is building a different grid than what would be expected for TOUGH2. Is there any special option involved in the MeshMaker run?


    • Alfredo Battistelli Yes you are right in the fact that TOUGH2 mesh generator is producing a different grid

      Apparently, it looks like the difference between Meshmaker v 1.5 and Tough2.0 is "How these calculate the middle node point that lies between 100 & 500.1"

      TOUGH2: using mean arithmetic 300 m = (100+500.1)/2

      Meshmaker: Logarithmic Mean: 224.0 m (= 10^( 0.5*(log(100) + log(500.1)) ) )

      anyways, I think its better to generate mesh using the inbuilt mesh software you are using, Avoid using Meshmaker,...ITS Really confusing sometimes

    • Alfredo Battistelli I am using Hydrateressim which models Hydrate dissociation, its basically TOUGH+Hydrate predecessor

      The problem i am facing is grid independency test failure

      I run the problem with 10 grids and it shows progression of dissociation front

      I run with 20 grids, it shows no dissociation at all

      i run with 30 grids, it shows only little dissociation

      i am perplexed???? what to do? should I abandon git or what??

      the files are attached here, all test files are "Test_1Pk" (Depressurization kinetic)

      attached pairs:

      Test files +plot data (3 column for hydrate dissocation progression) 

      if you want the software email me:

  • Depending on the problem you’re setting up (which I admittedly haven’t looked into yours in great detail), I would expect some changes in the simulation output with different mesh resolutions.  I don’t know if this will solve your specific problem, but the standard way to look into “grid independence” is to keep adding resolution to your mesh until the solution stops changing.

    • Mikey Hannon Thanks a lot for the comments

      I think maybe the problem is with the way Hydrateresim needs its mesh file(Its quite old version)

      Its successor (Tough+Hydrate) is much more updated and i ran the same grids and got GRID INDEPENDENCE STUDY....

      so i think its probably due to mesh problem...and comments about meshmaker inour previous thread discussion....add weight to this....maybe i m wrong

      i'll try to keep working on getting GIT with Hydrateressim and update if i succeed
