Mathematical simulation of the azimuthal-radial distribution of temperature in a well in the presence of heat sources
The results of theoretical investigations of radial and azimuthal distributions of temperature in a well-rock system in the presence of heat sources are presented. The problem considered is connected with determination of the intervals of fluid motion outside the column by thermal methods. It is shown that in the case of long existence of the channel of fluid overflow outside the column, useful information can be obtained by creating a “contrast” temperature, for example, by heating the fluid inside the casing and subsequently measuring the azimuthal distribution of temperature in the process of its recovery on disconnection of a heater.
