Hydraulics and Surge & Swab
Advanced calculation of circulating system pressure losses
With Oliasoft WellDesigns Hydraulics and Surge & Swab you can accurately model fluids with any rheology profile in any well configuration.
The functionality incorporates pipe eccentricity, rotation and cuttings transport, and handles ECD estimation from circulation.
Use the effect of buckled string from Oliasoft Torque and Drag analysis for pressure drop calculations. The functionality connects to the thermal simulation module to produce accurate temperature profiles as a basis for calculations.
Accurately model fluids in any well configuration
Oliasoft WellDesign’s Hydraulics and Surge & Swab allows you to accurately model fluids with any rheology profile in any well configuration. The module supports BHA design, wellbore cleaning, surge & swab and integrated load cases.
Model pressure losses through the entire circulating system, including rig setup, pipe string, bit and annulus.
Handle ECD estimation from circulation with cuttings load and cuttings transport efficiency. Optimise bit nozzle sizes for maximum ROP and hydraulics horsepower, and surge & swab calculations for full BHA, completion, and casing strings.
The hydraulic engines combine analytical and numerical finite difference mathematical models to predict accurate responses for circulation, reverse-circulation, drilling, and injection.
Our scalable backend architecture lets you solve numerical problems, faster.
