Volsung comprises several applications. Three of the most commonly used are:

  • Brynhild
    A simulator for building models, running forecasts.
  • Signy
    A thermodynamic table tool.
  • Gudrun
    A wellbore simulator.

To Run Volsung

Type in one of these applications into your windows search.
If you are starting off and want to be familiar with Volsung
reservoir modelling capabilities, type in Brynhild.

To help you get started, download two existing projects:

A synthetic project built from William B Cummings’ (Cummings and Mackie 2010) conceptual model of a generic geothermal system. This example includes a forecast with a surface network model including fully coupled wellbore models.

Download the model and begin.

Leapfrog workflow model:
This project uses the output of a Leapfrog model (*.lfm and *.ts files) for the base input of the Volsung numerical model. This model is not calibrated to any temperature or pressure data, but it shows the workflow linking Leapfrog and Volsung models.

Download the model and begin.

You can view the Leapfrog model through a WebViz public scene.
