Abstract

The purpose of this study is to utilize one complex geological 3D model for numerical simulations of various physical processes in process-specific simulation software. We provide a workflow for how to generate hexahedral, tetrahedral and spherical volume representations of the geometry. We utilized the volume representations to simulate temperature, displacement and transient electromagnetic fields. Additionally, we provide a workflow showing how to visualize and analyze the simulation results simultaneously. The scientific visualization is an important prerequisite for using geological 3D models in complex geological investigations.
