Following the email received today regarding the early results submission, I have a few questions:
If we submit results, do we need to submit a complete set of results as set out in the SPE11 description? Can we submit a subset of results if we don't have some of the results available?
Is there any value in submitting results that do not include the full set of mechanisms? For example, if we have run problem B isothermally, or without diffusion.
As these are only 'early' results, presumably there is plenty of time for results to be refined in terms of things like grid resolution, solver options, etc. Am I right in thinking that this session is more to focus on ensuring that participants are heading in the right direction?
Thank you for your questions.
For the early submission, it is ok to submit only partial results. You don't need to hand in results for all cases. Concerning the spatial data, you may submit less snapshots than asked for. The time series data doesn't need to cover the whole simulation period and a file may contain less rows than asked for. Just be sure to stick to the prescribed file format. In case that you don't calculate a quantity, put "nan" instead of a value.
There is value in submitting results that don't include everything as prescribed. Please note deviations from the description in the corresponding entry of spe11<x>_questionnaire.xls.
Yes, the early results will be used to get the discussion started and to learn from each other.
Following on this question, there is the following mention on the instructions: "Please refrain from uploading results of multiple runs for a single case."
Does this mean that only one simulator results can be uploaded per case or does it mean that we should submit only one realization per simulator in case we plan to use more than one simulator?
Thanks for asking. I have to correct myself. From the description: "Groups are encouraged to submit up to four results, if they deem it interesting, of which at least one should be representative of a computation that is reasonable within common reservoir engineering practice."
In case that a group uploads more than one result, subfolders "result1"... "result4" should be used to differentiate.
I will send out an updated email.
Hi Dr Bernd,
Thank you very much for the clarification.
