NumericalTuningofSTARS
CourseDescription

WHOSHOULDATTEND
This oneday course is designed for engineers, geologists or other technical personnel who would like to
learn more about the numerical tuning techniques of CMG's Advanced Process and Thermal Simulator
STARS. Basic CMG Builder/Results skills are required to learn the numerical tuning of STARS simulation
applications.

ABOUTTHECOURSE
The course will introduce concepts of CMG simulators (IMEX/GEM/STARS) with emphasis on numerical
tuningand diagnosisofSTARSproblems.TheindividualshouldbefamiliarwithCMGsimulationworkand
have some practical experience in STARS simulation. Specific techniques such as analyzing the numerical
outputparameters,finetuningoftheinputdata,diagnosesmalltimestepproblemandnonconvergenceof
CMGsimulatoroutputwillbeexamined.
CMG's Builder/Results software will be used extensively to modify data and results analysis. A handson
exercisewillbeincludedtohelpusersdebugthedatafile.
The course will provide participant enough information and techniques to fine tune and adjust their own
datasetandimprovetheperformanceofthemorecomplicatedSTARSsimulationprocess.
Keyfactorsintuningandmanagingdynamicgriddingandparallelizationwillalsobediscussed.
