The state of the art in CFD simulation in the Oil & Gas industry

Reading time: 145 minutes

Within the Oil & Gas industry, engineering designs have traditionally been developed using empirical analysis, physical testing and experience-based learning in the field. While these approaches remain important, the rise of simulation-based design, and particularly Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation, offers engineers the opportunity to explore designs and system operation digitally through detailed, accurate prediction of a wide range of physical and chemical behavior.

In this special report, we present how engineers and scientists from leading companies like TechnipFMC and OneSubsea are deploying Simcenter software in the design and operation of a range of oil and gas products and systems. A diverse range of applications and challenges are discussed including:

- Downhole tool optimization
- Subsea and flow assurance risk reduction
- Offshore and marine design
- Technical safety
- Process equipment design performance
