Keynote speakers: A. Michael Schaal, Director, Oil and Gas Division, Office of Integrated Analysis and Forecasting, Energy Information Administration (DOE) and Professor Philip J. Smith, Director, Institute for Clean and Secure Energy (ICSE), University of Utah
Rising energy demand from economic advancement and improved standards of living are putting added pressure on global energy sources and supplies. With such rapid growth in energy demand, technology is critical. Engineering costs and safety issues mean that simulation plays an increasingly major role in meeting these demands.
To address this environment, CD-adapco will host its second annual Simulation for Energy Engineering STARGlobal Forum. Participants will learn how 3-D flow, thermal, and stress simulation are facilitating innovation to improve design and development for risk avoidance and performance improvement in the energy sector. The forum will host over a dozen presentations from esteemed industry leaders, industrial technology partners and CD-adapco’s engineering simulation specialists from around the world. The presentations will include the latest performance improvement and design innovation from all aspects of Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Wind and Energy Conservation applications. Attendees will leave the event with a complete understanding of the business benefits of simulation and realistic implementation strategies for their organization.
“We are pleased to announce that A. Michael Schaal, Director, Oil and Gas Division, Office of Integrated Analysis and Forecasting, Energy Information Administration (DOE), and Professor Philip J. Smith, Director, Institute for Clean and Secure Energy (ICSE), University of Utah, will open this year’s event. Their keynote sessions will represent a global picture of the energy industry, as well as, tangible strategies for tapping into secure and clean energy sources while considering environmental, health, policy, and performance issues,” said Dennis Nagy, CD-adapco, Vice President of Business Development and Energy Sector Director.
Furthermore, CD-adapco’s foremost simulation experts will be on hand at the event to discuss key simulation technology advancements and answer questions. Specifically, Prof. Milovan Peric, published author of multiple well-known CAE books, will be discussing advances in flow and thermal simulation for Offshore and Marine Engineering, and Prof. Simon Lo, CD-adapco’s Director of Multiphase Flow Development, will be highlighting the new STAR-OLGA Link.
In addition to the Forum, the event will host a series of workshops and demonstrations. Attendees who choose to participate in these practical in-depth demonstrations and “hands-on” sessions will discover first-hand how easy it is to get useful engineering insight from new software tools and user environments.
