General Fluid Flow and Single Phase Flow
- Fluid flow definitions
- Single phase fluid and velocity in a pipeline
- Pressure drop equations and correlations
On the first day, participants will be given a quick introduction to fluid flow including definitions. Single phase fluid, fluid velocity in a pipeline, and single phase pressure drop equations and correlations will be discussed.
- Concept and definitions
- General and simplified equations
- Flow patterns and pattern maps
Day two of this course will focus on multiphase flow. Concepts, definitions, flow patterns, and general and simplified equations will all be covered on this day. Flow pattern maps and pressure drop correlations will also be discussed.
Multiphase Flow (Cont.)
- Mechanistic models
- Comparison of pressure drop estimation methods
- Transient multiphase flow models
The third day will continue the discussion of multiphase flow. Mechanistic models and the comparison of pressure drop estimation methods will be covered. Participants will also learn about transient multiphase flow models before participating in class exercises.
Operational Considerations and Metering of Multiphase Flow
- Operational considerations
- Type of corrosion under multiphase flow
- Multiphase flow metering
Day four will cover operation considerations, types of corrosion under multiphase flow and how to control it, as well as the different technologies, principles, and applications of multiphase flow metering.
Fluid Flow Simulator: Pipesim
- Fluid flow simulator
The last day will be completely about the Fluid Flow Simulator that will introduce participants to Pipesim. After this attendees will participate in a workshop.
Production engineers and facilities engineers.
