Calibration of Pipe Friction Factor Based on Improved Genetic Algorithm
This paper presents a method to calibrate pipe friction factor in oilfield water injection pipeline based on genetic algorithm. For the shortcoming, of basic genetic algorithms, genetic algorithm is made the corresponding improvements, this algorithm is improved global searching capability. Finally, a practical example verified the feasibility of the presented method.
