Article: Flow assurance & erosion simulation

A recent article written by Matt Straw was published in the August 2013 edition of the Scandanavian Oil & Gas Magazine.

In the aritcle Matt talks about the application of computer-based simulation tools and their benefits in aiding effective designs and operations for hydrate avoidance and mitigation in subsea production of oil and gas.

With specific reference to how the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique is being used by Norton Straw in its subsea engineering activities, Matt draws on how such approaches can currently help in subsea engineering and also talks about future development of engineering simulation techniques including how the CFD software STAR-CCM+ (by CD-adapco) is being developed to predict hydrate formation mechanisms.
