If it was possible that anything could be 100% pure, drawing gas out of the ground could be a piece of cake. Gas, unadulterated by any other substance could travel easily through the pipes without damaging a bit of the structure designed for its capture. Unfortunately, this isn't how the world works. All three states of matter are represented in the process of extracting natural gas from the earth - solids (sand) and liquid (water) come along for the ride. This wrecks havoc on the pipeline, especially at T-junctions and choke valves. Sand banging against flow obstructions causes erosion which ultimately leads to economic and production losses.

Safety First: Making Safer Designs Through CFD Simulation at Atkins Oil & Gas
If you are involved in the design and safety of offshore or onshore facilities (LNG, FLNG, drilling and production platforms, refineries), CD-adapco™ is holding an educational webcast for you. Safety is of paramount importance to both designers and operators of onshore and offshore facilities. As part of a risk-based approach, CFD is routinely used to predictively understand the consequences of any hydrocarbon leak and possibly its subsequent explosion and/or fire, to guide the design decisions. Atkins’ Ian Cowan discusses how they help their clients to design and operate safety facilities...

Cell temperature of air within a server room. Note the hot air coming out of the back of the servers, while the cool air is out in front, especially near the room's air conditioning inlets.
For supercomputers with dozens of blades each with tens of CPUs, proper cooling at both the component and systems level must to be ensured. Shown are Isosurfaces of air temperature in a server room obtain through simulations with STAR-CCM+.
Simulation showing temperature and flow patterns through an electronics board. Maintaining a safe temperature operating range is the dominant focus, but modern systems also need to be designed to strict energy usage guidelines.
Virtual Manufacturing Supports Improved Corrosion Protection by  E-coat Simulation
With major progress in simulation methods for product development, the need for expensive test hardware has been significantly reduced. The cost of expensive test hardware makes their availability limited, requiring additional development and application of manufacturing simulation methods for virtual testing purposes. Manufacturing simulation results communicated to the product design team will help ensure that manufacturing quality and cost requirements are met. Simulations can provide critical answers to questions such as, "Is there enough paint thickness in all of the cavities?" or "Is...
