Analysis of Non-local Multicontinuum Upscaling for Dual Continuum Model

11/02/2020 ∙ by Jingyan Zhang, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we develop and analyze a rigorous multiscale upscaling method for dual continuum model, which serves as a powerful tool in subsurface formation applications. Our proposed method is capable of identifying different continua and capturing non-local transfer and effective properties in the computational domain via constructing localized multiscale basis functions. The construction of the basis functions consists of solving local problems defined on oversampling computational region, subject to the energy minimizing constraints that the mean values of the local solution are zero in all continua except for the one targeted. The basis functions constructed are shown to have good approximation properties. It is shown that the method has a coarse mesh dependent convergence. We present some numerical examples to illustrate the performance of the proposed method.
