Sand is an inevitable by-product from the majority of fields in the oil and gas industry. It is problematic because under certain circumstances it can lead to rapid deterioration in pipe integrity, loss of containment and reduce life-span of equipment. Erosion can significantly impact metrology integrity which in turn produces inaccurate meter readings with fiscal implications for both operators and taxation authorities.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an invaluable tool to model erosion in three dimensions, providing an understanding of how meters and piping perform at field conditions. CFD analysis allows for comprehensive information and insight that may otherwise be difficult or expensive to obtain through physical testing.
This webinar provides an introduction to erosion modelling and shows delegates how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used to evaluate the error in a differential-pressure flow meter. This is achieved by an iterative process of altering the shape of the internal surfaces of the flow meter due to the levels of erosion predicted by CFD and recalculating the pressure drop.
Watch this webinar to learn:
• Key factors that contribute to erosion
• How erosion is modelled in Computational Fluid Dynamics
The aim of the webinar is to increase the delegate knowledge and understanding of erosion and how CFD erosion modelling can be applied to a wide range of applications.
