Simulation-Based Digital Twins for Heat Exchanger Operation and Maintenance Management

Nov 4, 2020
11 AM EST / 3 PM GMT

Insights provided by physics-based simulation together with advancements in sensor data collection have introduced great opportunities. Simulation can drastically reduce risks associated with cost and schedule overruns, resulting in reduced warranty costs and less downtime. Simulation can also play a central role in increasing a IoT platform’s ROI, empowering engineers to understand and assess the platform’s performance, spanning its initial deployment to its end of life. Additionally, simulation enables sensor placement optimization to improve physics-based data interpretation and enhance decision making. Lastly, simulation is used for monitoring assets, running diagnostics, performing prognostics and developing prescriptive resolutions to boost asset performance and utilization and record the system’s digital footprint. This webinar provides a detailed look at these use cases and spotlights how simulation-based digital twins support heat exchanger operation and maintenance management.

Mixed Flow Regime Modeling in Ansys Fluent

In the oil and gas sector, CFD modeling of mixed flow regimes and regime transitions in gas–liquid systems and gas–liquid flows often involves transient patterns, such as slug flow, annular flow, etc. These conditions often occur when more than one flow topology —droplet, bubbly or separated flows — exist. Such mixed flow regimes are more pronounced when the flow path involves bends, junctions and inclines. These flows can often involve regime transitions as well. The ability to predict mixed flows reliably is crucial for flow assurance and nuclear safety.

In this webinar, we discuss the recent advances in mixed flow regime modeling in Ansys Fluent, namely AIAD and GenTOP models. We discuss the background and applications of these models, then show examples of each.

Proppant Flow Analysis, Best Practices

Proppant transport modeling is a developing area of research. Well performance relies on open fractures, which require the proper transport of proppant over long distances. Numerical models help in determining key factors such as proppant placement, injection rate, proppant material and other geometrical considerations. However, it is critical to use appropriate models for particle drag and lift, as well as for turbulence and meshing, in order to validate the field data. This webinar will demonstrate, in detail, how to prepare these models for simulation to achieve the most accurate results.

Erosion Analysis in Ansys Fluent

In this webinar, we will discuss erosion modeling and erosion mesh deformation capabilities in Ansys Fluent. Material erosion under a sand–liquid flow is a serious problem in many engineering applications, especially oil and gas. The ability to predict the progress of erosion in pipelines is critical. The erosion process is complex and often depends on many factors, such as fluid parameters, particle parameters, impact parameters and material parameters. Depending upon the pipe wall material and the solid particle, erosion could be high, leading to material loss and geometry deformation. In some cases, the shape deformation due to erosion can change the flow behavior and, as a result, the erosion rate. Thus, it is important to be able to model shape deformation.

Thermodynamic Characterization of Hydrocarbons

June 24, 2020
11 AM EST / 3 PM GMT

Thermodynamic modeling of mixtures of hydrocarbons is a challenging area in computational fluid dynamics. Single-component modeling remains fairly straightforward as it uses a unique saturation curve for examining fluids.

However, the problem becomes more difficult when one deals with a mixture of two or more components. The photovoltaic thermal (PVT) collector relationship is more complex and harder to manage as the number of components increases. This requires vapor-liquid equilibrium curves at different mixture compositions. As a first step in this direction, Ansys Fluent has introduced the ability to read bubble point and dew point temperatures for a binary mixture to predict the thermodynamic state of the mixture.
