If you're interested in the numerical simulation of nonlinear structural materials and contact analysis, then tune into this webinar with guest speaker Oren Lever of Gas Technology Institute.
We will discuss how to model and simulate the squeeze-off of polyethylene (PE) pipes, a common method that is used to stop gas flow to enable downstream repairs or perform emergency shutoff. The researchers from Gas Technology Institute evaluated the minimum allowable squeeze-off distance from a fitting with the goal of helping routine operations and maintenance tasks.
During the webinar, we will show how COMSOL Multiphysics® was used to simulate the large deformations and contacts in PE pipe squeeze-off via a user-defined nonlinear viscoelastic-plastic material model. You can ask questions at the end of the webinar during the Q&A session.
