Default Oil and Gas Application (posted on wrong forum)
Posts: n/a

In the family of questions which code to use, here is one.

In oil and gas the 2 principal problems that are being investigated are:

- pipe flow+stress analysis. The pipes are trying to go deeper so the question is how to make them lighter, but as strong as possible to resist the higher stress from the challenging environments (higher pressure, lower/higher temperature).

- combustion and incinerators. To comply to tight specifications on composition depending on countries or continent, the fossil fuels are being processed to remove unwanted chemical species or component. Those species are used as combustible to generate energy for the whole processing plants. To get these combustion chambers or incinerator well designed drives the whole design process: no energy = no factory/no production. They are what make the plant economically viable.

This article is interesting:

Which one code would be able to solve those 2 specific applications?

No, there is a more principal problem: why not switch to renewable energy. Just joking...
