This video shows a simulation of an offshore capping stack placement. In the oil and gas industry, capping stacks are brought in to contain oil leaks in the case of a subsea blowout. In this simulation, the capping stack is tethered to a crane on the surface. The crane maneuvers the capping stack onto the faulty blowout preventer as a mixture of oil and gas streams out. The first view shows how the capping stack wobbles due to the forces from the oil/gas jet. The second view shows the mesh. Volume of fluid modeling was used to simulate the oil/gas jet, and a mooring cable model was used to simulate the tethering cable. The interaction between the jet and the capping stack was simulated with fluid-structure interaction modeling.
