Modeling Drilling & Fluidization Processes with DEM

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

This presentation will give an overview of how DEM is being used in two areas of Oil & Gas: drilling and for FCCs (fluidized catalytic crackers, used in refineries).  

In both cases, challenging physics problems are solved using a combination of Discrete Element Method (DEM) coupled to the flow solver.
