To take the specific example of production pipework ó roughly 50% of all wells produce sand, and 10% of pipework failures are due to erosion.
CFD simulation is increasingly being used by engineers to help make informed design and operational decisions relating to erosion and corrosion. This one-day, educational seminar will provide an introduction to the area, background on CFD erosion and corrosion models, and give examples of how STAR-CCM+ is being used in the design of production systems to reduce project risk as well as capital and operating expenditures.
This workshop will feature presentations from Wild Well Controlís Advanced Engineering Group, as well as CD-adapco's Dr. Oleh Baran and Dr. Chris Lueth. The seminar will also feature live demonstrations of STAR-CCM+, so attendees will be able to try for themselves during the hands-on session.
About The Presenters:
CD-adapcoís Dr. Oleh Baran will present on how oil & gas companies use STAR-CCM+ís couple fluid and particle dynamics capabilities (Discrete Element Method or DEM) to understand erosive environments from downhole tool design to FCCs. Before joining CD-adapco, Oleh studied at McGill University and was a researcher for ExxonMobil.
Dr. Chris Lueth will introduce STAR-CCM+ís hierarchy of corrosion models, from empirical to mechanistic, providing both model background and applications. Before joining CD-adapco, Chris completed a PhD at Stanford University and was a post-doc researcher at Sandia National Laboratories.
