IBM and CD-Adapco Announce Important Oil & Gas Simulation Seminars for Houston
HOUSTON, Texas, October 8 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM and CD-adapco are pleased to announce two important Oil and Gas industry seminars in Houston on October 21, each of which will explore the business benefits of using 3-D simulation (Computer-Aided Engineering and Computational Fluid Dynamics-CAE/CFD) to tackle tough engineering challenges in the development and operation of equipment and subsystems within key segments of the industry.
"Downhole Dynamics" (9:00 AM - 1:30 PM, including lunch) will explore how Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation of flow, thermal, and stress/vibration performance in drilling and development of wellbores for optimal petrochemical production can provide significant advantage in overcoming engineering development challenges in key areas."Petrochemical Plant and Equipment Improvement" (Noon-4:30 PM, including lunch) will show how simulation of flow, thermal, and stress/vibration performance during design and modification of plant systems and equipment to improve performance and extend useful operating life can provide significant advantage in overcoming key development challenges.
"IBM and CD-adapco have a long history of delivering leading edge solutions to Oil and Gas customers. CD-adapco's CAE/CFD solutions combined with IBM's technologies will provide customers a fast, scalable and a highly available environment that improves customer productivity and brings huge time savings to our customers," said Par Hettinga, Segment Manager - CAE and Petroleum, within the IBM Systems & Technology Group -Deep Computing.
"We have found great resonance for our CAE/CFD solutions within the global Oil and Gas industry and are pleased to have the opportunity, along with IBM, to showcase relevant technologies and some customer case examples in Houston, in connection with our recent establishment of a full-service Houston office," said Dennis Nagy, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development and Energy Sector Director at CD-adapco.
