CFD for Offshore Oil and Gas
BMT Fluid Mechanics provides consultancy services in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling in a wide range of applications for the offshore oil and gas industry. Areas of expertise include:
Computational modelling of topside natural ventilation to assess compliance of platform ventilation with design safety criteria and operational safety requirements.
CFD modelling of airflow in enclosed areas for mechanical ventilation design optimisation
Simulation of flammable gas dispersion and gas build-up for assessment of explosion risk and for positioning of gas detectors.
Fire and Smoke Propagation
CFD modelling of fire development and smoke dispersion.
Gas vapour explosion simulations for peak blast overpressures.
Modelling of exhaust stack releases and helideck wind environment.
Computational modelling of Waste Heat Recovery Unit (WHRU) performance for internal flow optimisation.
