Driving electric powertrain innovation through simulation
Globalization , demographic transformation and climate change are megatrends that will impact the future of mobility. Following this urbanization process, vehicles need to improve in safety, efficiency and range in order to assure economic competitiveness without forgetting environmental sustainability. To support this sustainable development, simulation technologies are fundamental to create efficient electro mobility solutions. This On-Demand webinar will focus on and demonstrate how simulation tools can be efficiently used together as an end-to-end solution, from system down to component...
Efficiency is a significant priority to every business operating in the full range of oil and gas markets. The sustained oil low price has certainly driven major changes across all aspects of the exploration and production industries in recent years. In 2014, a report by McKinsey into the efficiency of North Sea production facilities highlighted the potential for both new and ageing production infrastructure to deliver greater production efficiency. The industry reacted to the efficiency challenge, following the major drop in oil price, with initiatives like the UK Oil and Gas Efficiency Task Force; which has helped define many areas where action can be taken to target improved efficiency and work towards securing the future of the industry. Efficiency improvements can come in a multitude of areas, through every aspect of an oil and gas business and throughout the industry, for example in: Oil and gas production and processing – the Efficiency Task Force mentioned above has highlighted many areas that will help here; How companies are managed, operated and structured – we continue to read announcements of business restructuring, acquisitions and mergers where talk of business efficiencies are a primary objective; How we perform our work – digital technology can enable significant progress to be made in the efficiency of engineering activities in design, analysis and simulation are undertaken as discussed in the following.
This solution brief reports on a study that used multiphysics simulation and optimization technology to explore drill-bit design. The overarching objective was to reduce costs by improving drilling process efficiency. The exploration project team used STAR-CCM+® software for multiphysics simulation and the built-in Optimate+ software optimization solution from product lifecycle management (PLM) specialist Siemens PLM Software.
Pipeline and piping vibration can cause a range of issues from reduced process efficiency and unplanned shutdowns to decreased equipment life or even loss of containment. It is an issue for engineers designing systems in many industries and has been of specific concern in subsea oil and gas in recent years. This article focuses on the phenomenon termed flow-induced vibration (FIV), where the internal flow of process fluids within a pipeline or piping system causes some form of vibration of the pipe.
Erosion caused by solid particles in process flows impacting on the surfaces of downhole equipment or pipe walls is a common cause of damage and wear in oil and gas production as well as many other process industries. In the oil and gas industry, erosion can pose a significant integrity risk in flowlines, valves and connectors in production systems if not managed appropriately. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a cost-effective means of predicting the location and magnitude of erosion damage. In practice, different flow regimes and particle loadings can lead to a range of erosion...
