But cut to the water's edge.

But she caught the pail with her hand dexterously,
Oh! the scene was imposing end most beautiful to see.

In science:

We compare the saturation fields and water-cut data as a function of pore volume injected (PVI).
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
The water-cut is defined as the fraction of water in the produced fluid and is given by qw /qt , where qt = qo + qw , with qo and qw being the flow rates of oil and water at the production edge of the model.
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
Fig. 5.4 depicts the mean of water-cut curves.
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
We see that the four water-cut curves are almost identical.

Fig. 5.5 depicts the standard deviation of water-cut curves by the four different methods.
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
The standard deviation of water-cut curve by L-MMsFEM based on hybrid HDMR is almost identical to the standard deviation of water-cut curve by L-MMsFEM based on adaptive HDMR.
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
We list these relative errors of water-cut in Table 5.3.

Fig. 5.8 describes the the relative errors of water-cut mean (left) and water-cut standard deviation (right) for the different number of the most active dimensions.
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
The reason is that the MMsFEM error is the main contribution of total error and has greater impact on the water-cut than HDMR itself.

A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
The reason may be that the value of water-cut changes sharply right after water break-through time.

The standard deviation of the water-cut curves for the four methods are illustrated in Fig. 5.13.
A hybrid HDMR for mixed multiscale finite element method with application for flows in random porous media
By the figure, we find that the variance of water-cut mostly occurs between the water-break-through time and time when water is full of the reservoir.
