  1. Hi, a little late here for the original post I guess. But since I had the same question. I wanted to share what helped me to get five-spot sample: Based on recommendations in this post on the tough forum, I set the initial fraction of tracer to 0.01 in the reservoir and only injected tracer (no water). Thus I see in the resulting plots how the injected water moves away from the injection well. Julia
  2. Exporting 3D solid model voxel information

    Msayed, a workflow that works for me quite good (not sure if you can apply with the FEM software you are using) Generate the mesh in the GUI of the FEM software Export gridpoints or center points import into RW using: RockWorks | Utilities | File | Import | Text run the residuals on 3D solid model you have in RW using: RockWorks | Utilities | Solid | Statistics | Residuals import the info now mapped to the grid/centerpoint of your grid to the FEM mesh Cheers, Julia
  3. Suggestion for Rockworks 17

    Hi, it'd be great to see that feature. It's been out there for a while, see similar discussion a while ago. Cheers, Julia
  4. I am wondering if anyone can suggest a best practice for keeping track of well construction changes in the database. One idea I had was to copy the well bore each time the completion changes. but that also means duplicating any log (P-) data, thus would necessarily duplicate data in the database. So ideally it would be only one well bore entry, but a possibility to go back in time for different completion setups. (e.g. adding removing gauges, deepening of a well, ....) Any other ideas out there, input appreciated. Thanks, Julia
  5. Hi Tom, that's useful information here. interesting is that if I use "EZ-map" the triangulation works fine with the data set. Only when using "Grid-Based" map, I need to decluster. Does "EZ-map" decluster automatically? Regards, Julia
  6. Hi, what is the fastest way to add a proper color legend when plotting P-data with disks and option 'Cold--> Hot colors' (see image) in 3D? I assume the value range I have to get from min/max of the P-data values. but which color scheme is used for visualization, 2-colors or 3-colors? what are the starting/ending colors? Best regards, Julia
  7. Hi, when running RockWorks | Borehole Manager | StripLogs | Borehole Survey the "Depth Incrementation/Resolution" refers to measured depth, right? Is there a way in Rockworks to resample this result then into constant elevation interval? Or better, get the survey at constant elevation intervals from the beginning? Thanks, Julia
  8. Resample survey at constant elevation

    Hi Tom, thanks. True for horizontal wells that makes no sense. Julia
  9. Hi, does anyone have experience with performance of loading files when creating layers? I am working with XYZ files, that have ~60,000 points and the loading takes more than five minutes. Would dxf or contour be faster? Do "internal boundaries" already in the model have an effect on the speed of loading? Tips or tricks how to speed up the loading process are appreciated. Thanks, Julia
  10. create a new layer - from file

    Alison, thanks. In the end reducing the grids to below 10,000 grid points help speed up the process quite a bit. (It made the grids less smooth, but it was still ok for the model) Julia
  11. I see that the color bar changes when choosing "Logarithmic Scale" for a plot. Is there a way to keep color bar and adjust the labels to logarithmic increments? Thanks, Julia
  12. Logarithmic scale

    Great, thanks. Julia
  13. TVD plots within RW have been discussed for a while now. (see e.g. here). So I agree with Edward, it'd be great to have such feature in RW. :-) Regarding the issue of wells starting from the same location: I used Brian's suggestion once, that works fine. Though it can be tedious in case you have a lot of boreholes, to zoom in to the selection map. Would providing a drop down list for boreholes to show in section view be an option for that? E.g. when the user chooses to visualize bore holes with uniform borehole spacing.
  14. Excel not installed???

    Edward, I experience that issue, too. Sometimes it helped to make sure any instance of Excel is closed before starting the export from RW. Julia
  15. When setting a permeability modifier to an element named 'B' in a model that is running with MINC: Does this modifier apply to fracture or matrix continua? I see the modifier is written in the MESH file for that element 'B', but no indication of this modifier in the MINC file for the 'B' and/or '2 B' element. Is it correct to assume the modifier will be only applied for the fracture continua? Best regards, Julia
  16. What is the best way to show multiple deviated wells side by side plotted against TVD? Using view direction (even in case of more or less constant azimuth) cannot really be used, to be able to compare various logs against each other.
  17. RW16 SQL multiple users

    Hi, I'm wondering how RW handles multiple users connecting to the same SQL database. Can it happen that one user is overwriting the input of a second one, if they are both editing at the same time, e.g. the project notes at different line numbers? Would the user get a warning? Thanks, Julia
  18. RW16 SQL multiple users

    Hi Tom, thanks. Great, Julia
  19. Could RW immediately create a BH even with default values (e.g. -1) after entering a name only? To avoid the necessity of filling in fake numbers and clicking away and back? Thanks. Julia
  20. Setting a custom projection

    Tom, it's often custom or regional projections (like NZMG), that's why I suggest add possibility to read projection from a common format like *.prj (which I'm not sure now if it already gets output from RW, when exporting to ESRI format (I wanted to see, but received error when exporting, will send that separately)) or PROJ.4 library (trac.osgeo.org/proj/wiki) compliant. Cheers, Julia
  21. Setting a custom projection

    Looking for the same capability, since we have to deal with projections not covered by RW16 a lot recently. Very much apprechiated if this feature gets added. Easiest in my opinion would be to make it able read *.prj files which are very common in this context. Thanks, Julia
  22. Hi, how does Petrasim deal with one productivity index (PI), if the well intersects cells with different thicknesses (dz) and different permeabilities? My assumption is that I have to calculate PI for each intersecting cell and then take an appropriate average? Thanks for other thoughts on that. Julia
  23. RW16 and SQL Express 2014

    Hi, does RW 16 support and work with SQL Express 2014? Julia
  24. Tom, that is a useful hint, that works - until the "TVD log" feature (I recall now that it is on the wish list) is implemented. (Still a bit tedious if the logs are close to each other, needs further shifting of location of duplicate well or shifting of plotted items). Thanks, Julia
