Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) involves the solution of transport equations for mass, momentum, and energy in a virtual solution domain. The solution domain represents the geometry of interest (Separator, Fired Heater, Crude Oil Storage tanks, etc.,).

“CFD is an inexpensive tool that allows engineers to visualize and troubleshoot equipment/systems design during Concept, FEED, Engineering, Start-up and Operations”

At Tailwater Technical Consulting, we have extensive knowledge and experience in using CFD tools for a range of problems in Upstream, Midstream and Downstream segments of Oil & Gas.
