Title: FDEM v. 3.0

Abstract

Program FDEM_v3.0 is designed to simulate three-dimensional (3D) electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation within an isotropic and heterogeneous body. The medium is characterized by the three isotropic (but spatially-variable) parameters electric permittivity, magnetic permeability, and current conductivity. The numerical solution methodology is explicit, time-domain, finite-differencing of the EH (i.e., electric vector – magnetic vector) coupled partial differential system on uniform, but staggered, spatial and temporal grids. In order to suppress grid boundary reflections, FDEM_v3.0 implements “perfectly matched layer” (PML) absorbing boundary conditions on all flanks of the 3D spatial grid in a memory efficient manner.

  • The ISF solver is the first step in creating an integrated FDEM THM approach; its ability to capture flows ranging from incompressible to compressible flows at different Reynolds numbers has been demonstrated.
  • Algorithm FOEM numerically solves a system of six, coupled, first-order, linear, inhomogeneous partial differential equations (called the "EH-system") with an explicit, time-domain, finite-difference (FD) The six dependent variables three electric field vector components and three magnetic field FOEM vector components) are stored on staggered spatial and temporal grids. Discrete FO operators approximating the partial derivatives possess 2nd-order accuracy in time and Nth-order accuracy in space. The 3D spatial grid is rectangular, and grid intervals are uniform in each coordinate direction. FD formulae for updating the wavefield variables are appropriately non-dimensionalized and normalized so that single-precision arithmetic calculations yield adequate accuracy.more » This software will be used to generate electromagnetic responses for typical geological/geophysical models of interest in the petroleum, mining, geotechnical, geothermal, hydrological, environmental assessment, and underground storage industries. Additionally, US government agencies (including the military) involved in monitoring of explosions (chemical or nuclear) or remote surveillance of underground facilities may be interested in using algorithm FOEM. Finally, this software may be of use to organizations involved in fundamental research and applications development in the area of electromagnetic wave propagation (e.g. national laboratories, academic departments. industry).« less
  • Program FDEM_v2.0 is designed to simulate three-dimensional (3D) electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation within an isotropic and heterogeneous body. The medium is characterized by the three isotropic (but spatially-variable) parameters electric permittivity, magnetic permeability, and current conductivity. The numerical solution methodology is explicit, time-domain, finite-differencing of the EH (i.e., electric vector – magnetic vector) coupled partial differential system on uniform, but staggered, spatial and temporal grids. FDEM_v2.0 incorporates “perfectly matched layer” (PML) absorbing boundary conditions on all flanks of the 3D spatial grid that effectively suppress grid boundary reflections.
  • This report presents the results of a customer telephone survey of the users of two software programs provided by the U. S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) during calendar years 1995 and 1996. The primary purpose for the survey is to provide the Team Leader to FEMP Technical Assistance and members of the team with detailed customer feedback pertaining to how well selected FEMP software programs are being used and to identify areas for improvement. The information presented enables managers to see both the strengths of their software programs and software components that can be improved. Themore » survey was conducted during the fall of 1997 in conjunction with a FEMP workshop attendee survey. The results of the workshop survey are presented is a sister document entitled, ''An Evaluation of the Federal Energy Management Program's Technical Assistance Workshops.« less
