Simulated annealing technique in discrete fracture network inversion; optimizing the optimization

Simulated annealing technique in discrete fracture network inversion; optimizing the optimization

Computational Geosciences 11(3): 249-260

Simulated annealing (SA) has the capacity to handle complex problem of fracture heterogeneity. However, its applications to characterization and modeling of an actual discrete fracture network are limited. Borrowing the context of geothermal reservoirs (where extensive discrete fractures exist), this paper attempts to solve several key practical issues that persist in current models: objective functions (OFs) formulation, modification scheme, and stop criteria. The improvements are examined in a case study on an actual fracture outcrop, where results are compared with a current and advanced SA work.
