Typical applications for FEA include Linear Elastic Analysis Non-Linear Non-Linear Material Models Non-Linear Large Displacement Non-Linear Multi-Body Contact Dynamics Fluid-Structural Interaction (FSI) Impact Fatigue



PMI has experience on a wide variety of CFD projects with flows ranging from quiescent, buoyancy-driven flows to hypersonic aerodynamics. We routinely use advanced modeling techniques including deforming meshes, multiple species and User Defined Functions (UDFs) to provide optimal solutions

Sour Oil & Gas Advanced Technology (SOGAT) 2016

Sour Oil & Gas Advanced Technology (SOGAT) 2016

The Sour Oil & Gas Advanced Technology (SOGAT) conference was held in Abu Dhabi on March 20-24, 2016.  This gathering, which is focused on the gas conditioning issues that must be addressed to deliver sweetened gas for industrial development and infrastructure needs, has become the most prestigious meeting on this topic in the Middle East. This conference can be considered the counterpart to the Laurence Reid Gas Conditioning (LRGC) conference held each year at the University of Oklahoma in the United States. At SOGAT, Michael Porter, P.E. delivered a paper introducing a new analysis framework developed by PMI for the analysis and[...]

2016 Laurance Reid Thermal Reactor Analysis

On February 23, 2016, at the prestigious Laurance Reid Gas Conditioning Conference, PMI provided a “sneak peek” at the new framework that they have developed for the analysis of Sulfur Recovery Unit Thermal Reactors (TRs).  Although the framework has been developed specifically for TRs, it is actually applicable for any combustion-fired unit.  For the first time, the use of CFD is now available to model flow, combustion and acoustics on an industrial scale.   PMI has uploaded two videos to our YouTube channel (channel link) showing the flame shapes for a condition that caused problematic vibrations in the field.  The high[...]
