Modelling comprehensive Oil & Gas Industry solutions using Flownex SE

June 28, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm

Flownex has proven to be an indispensable software tool in the oil and gas industry. It offers the engineer the ability to analyse complex thermo-fluid systems in steady or transient state much quicker and more in-depth than many other tools. Comprehensive 3-D CFD analyses of an entire plant or even sections of a plant are not feasible.

Other tools such as HYSYS are typically used to perform overall plant heat and mass balances but are not ideally suited for detailed fluid flow and heat transfer design scenarios.

A Flownex project consists of connected pre-built components to represent a thermo-fluid network. These components are often based on empirical relationships, thus allowing much faster and often more accurate results than pure CFD solutions. Solutions take seconds instead of hours or days.

Flownex’s real power and flexibility is best displayed when engineers develop component libraries for their specific industry. An example would be an entire API fired heater modeled in a single component.

This webinar will provide a quick overview on the following topics:

Combustion Modelling
• Natural gas combustion
• Direct fired heaters
• Indirect heaters

Heat Transfer
• Tube wall and film temperature calculations
• Transient wall temperatures and thermal fatigue
• Pressure drop with heat transfer

Flow Systems
• Orifice sizing and sensitivity analysis
• PSV sizing
• Pipe wall thickness and flange rating calculations
• Transport pipeline flow velocity economic optimisation

Software Comparisons
• Flownex vs HYSYS
