Erosion CFD Modeling in Downhole Oil Well Applications - Presentation

CFD erosion modeling is an essential tool in design and operation of downhole completions and production systems. Baker Hughes presents erosion CFD modeling examples in a variety of oil and gas well applications: CFD erosion model calibration with testing of corrosion-resistant alloy materials eroded by sand and resulting accuracy, low sand concentration applications (such as downhole valves and electrical submersible pumps) as well as high sand concentration applications (such as fracking).
