Join the SIMULIA Tech Talk and learn more about the coupled, multiphysics simulation capabilities found in Abaqus for modeling of advanced and enhanced geothermal systems.
Geothermal energy is ubiquitous, abundant, and, unlike solar and wind energies, is not affected by seasonal variations. For these reasons, geothermal energy is increasingly becoming a reliable and scalable source of clean energy in many parts of the world. Enhanced geothermal systems allow us to extract geothermal energy at a commercial scale effectively and economically. However, the design of geothermal systems is fraught with significant challenges as it requires simultaneous consideration of changes in thermal, mechanical, and pore-pressure fields within the reservoir rock.
