ANSYS Fault-Tolerant Meshing for the Oil and Gas Industry
Many important and complex simulations involve dirty and non-watertight geometries; creating a good quality mesh is always a challenging part of any such simulation. These complex meshes consume significant engineering time and effort in geometry preparation, largely involving extensive clean-up and repair. Now, ANSYS Fluent includes a fault-tolerant meshing workflow that can simplify and speed meshing for even the dirtiest geometries with no geometry preparation required.

Introduction to Polymer Processing Simulation
Polymers may be processed in different ways, e.g., coating, pressing, squeezing, extrusion, blowmolding and thermoforming, among others. In this webinar, the challenges of modeling these processes will be presented along with workflows for running successful ANSYS Polyflow and ANSYS Fluent simulations. Additional materials (case studies, examples and tutorials) will be shared at the end of the presentation.

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.

Directly Enter Expressions to Speed, Simplify Simulations in ANSYS Fluent 2019 R1
Learn about the exciting Fluent Expression Language capability included in ANSYS 2019 R1.
Have you ever tried to specify a parabolic inlet velocity profile or implement a simple thermostat-like heating/cooling boundary condition, but shied away because both require ANSYS Fluent user-defined functions (UDFs)? With the new Fluent Expression Language, UDFs will no longer be a barrier to these simple but essential boundary conditions.
This on-demand webinar will include live demonstrations to get you started using Fluent Expressions. Learn how it can shorten your learning curve and expand the scope of your CFD simulations.
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.

Reduced Order Models (ROMs) for Simulation Democratization and Digital Twins
CFD analysis generally takes a long time and requires significant computational resources, which makes it difficult to perform real-time monitoring or predictive maintenance. In addition, prior knowledge/experience is required to set up CFD simulations and extract meaningful results. Reduced order models (ROMs) can significantly speed up the process and make simulations easier. A ROM is a simplified version of a high-fidelity computational model that preserves essential behavior and dominant effects while reducing the solution time and computational storage capacity required. In this webinar, a series of ROMs will be shown, along with the workflow to create the ROMs. These examples will highlight how ROMs can be used by operators/non-simulation experts to perform ‘what-if’ analysis within seconds without compromising on accuracy.
