Presenter: Bruce Kakimpa (Norton Straw)
“Opportunities and Challenges in CFD-FEA assessments of Multiphase-induced vibration”

Presentation will share some of our experiences with the use of CFD and FEA simulations to support multiphase-induced vibration risk assessments in subsea, top-side and on-shore refining applications.

The talk will aim to provide:

  • an overview of some existing methodologies
  • example scenarios where coupled CFD-FEA methodologies supported risk assessment for vibration fatigue and fretting wear mechanisms
  • some wider thoughts on how to improve simulation fidelity and approach questions of uncertainty quantification
