Reproducing the conditions for the transportation and processing of hydrocarbons requires very large and energy-intensive installations. The numerical simulation of these operations thus enables you to improve your yields and optimize the performance of your designs by avoiding the implementation of expensive experimental measures.
The applications here include:
• Hydrocarbon extraction (simulation in porous media for hydraulic fracturing applications)
• Transport of raw or processed materials (optimization of networks, reduction of the sloshing phenomenon in tanker-trucks)
• The optimization of transformation processes (fuel or chemical production)
