Proppant transport modeling is a developing area of research. Well performance relies on open fractures, which require the proper transport of proppant over long distances. Numerical models help in determining key factors such as proppant placement, injection rate, proppant material and other geometrical considerations. However, it is critical to use appropriate models for particle drag and lift, as well as for turbulence and meshing, in order to validate the field data. This webinar will demonstrate, in detail, how to prepare these models for simulation to achieve the most accurate results.
