Simulating Erosion Using ANSYS Computational Fluid Dynamics - Presentation

Simulating sand erosion in oil and gas applications is critical to ensure high equipment reliability. Accurate predictions of the effects of sand erosion require the ability to simulate multiphase flows, transport of solid particles (sand), wall impingement and wall erosion (removal of material from the wall). In this presentation, you will learn how ANSYS can simulate pipe erosion accurately based on • Validated single-phase and multiphase modeling capabilities for any type of oil and gas flow • Validated solid-particle flow modeling capabilities for a wide range of sand particle sizes and loadings • A wide array of industry-accepted erosion models, as well as the ability to include your proprietary erosion model if needed • The ability to deform the pipe wall if erosion is affecting the flow pattern
