Machine learning applied in the multi-scale 3D stress modelling

08/25/2020 ∙ by Xavier Garcia, et al. ∙ 0

This paper proposes a methodology to estimate stress in the subsurface by a hybrid method combining finite element modeling and neural networks. This methodology exploits the idea of obtaining a multi-frequency solution in the numerical modeling of systems whose behavior involves a wide span of length scales. One low-frequency solution is obtained via inexpensive finite element modeling at a coarse scale. The second solution provides the fine-grained details introduced by the heterogeneity of the free parameters at the fine scale. This high-frequency solution is estimated via neural networks -trained with partial solutions obtained in high-resolution finite-element models. When the coarse finite element solutions are combined with the neural network estimates, the results are within a 2% error of the results that would be computed with high-resolution finite element models. This paper discusses the benefits and drawbacks of the method and illustrates their applicability via a worked example.
