flow simulation

1. n. [Reservoir Characterization]
The dynamic simulation of fluids through a reservoir model over time. When the simulation correctly recreates the past reservoir performance, it is said to be "history matched," and a higher degree of confidence placed in its ability to predict the future fluid behavior in the reservoir.
