What is Peaceman’s formula?
In reservoir simulation to calculate fluid inflow pressure drop (reservoir pressure - BHP) required. The pressure equivalent radius of the grid block is defined as the distance from the well at which the local pressure is equal to the nodal average pressure of the block. In a Cartesian grid,. . . more
