Sensitivity study of boreholetosurface and crosswell electromagnetic measurements acquired with energized steel casing to water displacement in hydrocarbonbearing layers
(Geophysics, 20081231)We study the theoretical response of electromagnetically energized steel casing in the presence of subsurface variations of electrical resistivity. Casing is energized with a finitesize solenoid antenna located along the ... 
Energynormbased and goaloriented automatic hp adaptivity for electromagnetics: Application to waveguide Discontinuities
(IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, 20081231)The finiteelement method (FEM) enables the use of adapted meshes. The simultaneous combination of h (local variations in element size) and p (local variations in the polynomial order of approximation) refinements, i.e., ... 
Simulation of DC duallaterolog measurements in complex formations: A Fourierseries approach with nonorthogonal coordinates and selfadapting finite elements
