I'm trying to calculate the amount of fluid that would flow through an area dependant on the amount of pressure that there is. I'd also like to know the rate at which it would flow.
Essentially I have a very basic model of a well drilling system. At the moment the variables / parameters for each of the objects in question are defined by the user but may be set to constants to enable testing.
The assumptions I'm working on are:
The viscosity of the oil / hydrocarbons is set to constant. Once drilled the area of the hole will not change (there will be no collapse etc). The well is never ending so constant pressure.
If someone could point me in the right direction I'd be very thankful. Some of the assumptions may be way off so guidance in general is also appreciated, many thanks.
