Around the world, oil and gas companies require best-in-class technology to maintain profitabiliy, reliability and safety.
Ural Diesel-Motor Works uses multiphysics simulation to avoid thermal cracking in a cylinder head.
With high-speed iterations between mechanical and fluids software, fluid structure interaction quickly pinpointed the cause of damaging vibrations and assessed new designs for offshore oil and gas equipment. First, engineers performed a modal analysis with ANSYS Mechanical software, which calculated relatively low first natural frequencies in the range of 15 Hz to 25 Hz. The mode shapes from this analysis indicated that the maximum vibration amplitude would occur in the lower cone of each structure. Next, the engineering team performed a fluid structure interaction (FSI) simulation to study the turbulent flow of exhaust gases through the stack and the resulting pressure fluctuations on the sidewalls.
One of the biggest challenges in designing reciprocating compressors is understanding the complex operation of reed valves that open and close as they deform under loads generated by fluid flowing through the compressor. Tecumseh engineers used ANSYS multiphysics capabilities to design a new compressor that consumes less power and produces less noise in under half the time required to design the previous product.
