Ensuring a Good Bond - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V10 I3

New Baker Hughes electromagnetic– acoustic transducer (EMAT) technology provides a more accurate method of assessing the bond between the cement and casing in an oil well. Baker Hughes engineers used ANSYS Mechanical to maximize the reliability and reduce the time to market for this technology by 20 percent; the key was designing the complex linkage assembly to successfully deploy the transducers inside the wellbore for measurements.
