Managed Pressure Drilling: Modeling, Strategy and Planning ...
Our 2010-2011 Department of Energy research and software development efforts have been more than successful. In fact, we presented four papers on drilling and cementing flow modeling at the 2011 AADE National Technical Conference and Exhibition in Houston during April 12-14, sponsored by the American Association of Drilling Engineers. These are, namely,
Got you interested? We'll send you these papers absolutely free, upon request. Simply write the author at firstname.lastname@example.org. But if you want more, and that's much, much more, you'll want to study our book ... you can peruse our detailed Table of Contents below, beneath our informative "screen shots."
Simulating is believing. If reading about the real thing is not enough, each of our dozens of complicated simulations will run on your laptop in minutes (if not seconds) using our MPD Flow Simulator. For your complimentary copy, write us at email@example.com and we'll send you a FTP link for the 40 mb download.
Snapshots of computed results ...
Without doubt, the most comprehensive reference on petroleum annular flow ...
Annular flow with high eccentricity, general cross-section, borehole axis curvature, pipe or casing rotation, axial movement, general transient effects, arbitrary non-Newtonian yield stress fluid ...
General "managed pressure drilling" problem formulated ... and solved.
Typical axial velocities, displayed automatically (default contour plots and rotatable perspective views shown).
Computed velocity, apparent viscosity, shear rate and viscous stress distributions for engineering correlation.
Transient, three-dimensional, multiphase mode ... movie capabilities built-in.
Yield stress velocity profiles, with pipe stationary, moving with and against flow, computed and displayed in just seconds.
Steady flow, "plain English" user interface for a very difficult problem!
Transient, single-phase interface, allowing general pipe motions and pump actions (database of previous runs enhances real-time learning).
Transient, multiphase menu ... "zoom in" to view non-Newtonian interfacial mixing details!
