Method of constructing an optimized mesh for reservoir simulation in a subterranean formation

Abstract : The invention is a method of constructing an optimized mesh for reservoir simulation in a subterranean formation useful for exploration in exploitation of oil deposits. At an instant T of the reservoir simulation, a size function is estimated, characterizing the initial mesh representative of the subterranean formation being studied. Next the flow of the fluids within the formation at this instant T is simulated by use of a reservoir simulator and of the initial mesh. An optimized size function is thereafter computed by use of the size function estimated on the initial mesh and of at least one parameter deduced from the reservoir simulation. And finally, an optimized mesh is constructed by modifying the initial mesh as a function of the optimized size function.
