Pressure distribution of a synthetic test case. Cornerpoint grid with faults drawn from the Saigup project. This case is explored in a tutorial for the opm polymer simulator.
OPM in a nutshell
The Open Porous Media (OPM) initiative provides a set of open-source tools centered around the simulation of flow and transport of fluids in porous media. The goal of the initiative is to establish a sustainable environment for the development of an efficient and well-maintained software suite based on the following principles:

OPM Symposium May 2013
This year, a one and a half day symposium focused on the Open Porous Media Initiative will be organized in Bergen, Norway from May 28 to May 29. It is open to everyone directly or indirectly interested in the OPM initiative. The idea of the symposium is to be forum to exchange ideas. For this reason, its setting will be informal and it will be centered around short presentations and discussions.
Call for PresentationsWe strongly encourage everyone with an interest in OPM to contribute a presentation. Please notify us as soon as possible if you would like to participate.
DeadlineIf you intend to participate, please send the title and a short abstract of your presentation to Kristin Flornes or Atgeirr Rasmussen no later than May 10, 2013.
Date and VenueThe event will be taking place on 28-29 May 2013 at VilVite, Thormøhlensgate 51, next to the IRIS office in Bergen, Norway.
Participation FeeThe participation fee for the OPM symposium is €150 / NOK 1500 to cover the cost of the two lunches and the dinner. We are looking forward to seeing you in Bergen!

OPM Release update
The upcoming release is now quite close. Binary packages for Ubuntu 12.04 have been made available, please use them to test the release. The easiest way to install the packages is to first add the opm personal package archive (ppa):
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:opm/ppa sudo apt-get updateTo see a list of (for example) the opm-polymer packages:
apt-cache search opm-polymerThen, to install the opm-polymer simulators and its dependencies,
sudo apt-get install libopm-polymer1-binIf you have an issue with a specific package, please create an issue on the github page for the specific library.
