From Reservoir to Refinery: The Value of CFD Simulation in Oil & Gas
Thursday, October 31, 2013

If you have challenges related to fluid flow, heat & mass transfer and want to know if CFD can help. Or if you already have a CFD solution and are curious about the latest technology developments, then this educational webcast is for you.

Whether it’s erosion, flow induced vibration and fatigue life, insulation design, safety studies, well containment, separation, Vortex Induced Motion (VIM), air gap and green water, valve slamming or understanding proppant behavior, CFD is providing valuable insight to engineers throughout the Oil & Gas industry.

Through a series of case studies, the webcast introduces CFD, CD-adapco and STAR-CCM+. Application areas include:

  • Downhole tools
  • Subsea equipment
  • Flow assurance
  • Floating platforms
  • Separation processes
  • Combustion equipment and heat transfer

We highlight the different ways in which CFD is used – from innovating new designs to troubleshooting problems in the field – as well as the business impact of analyses.
