Offshore and Energy CFD

The use of CFD for offshore and energy applications is endless.  TotalSim have extensive experience in using CFD for different problems in these sectors, ranging from helideck safety studies to the optimisation of hydroelectric power turbines.

An example of some applications includes:

  • Offshore oil and gas platforms
  • Offshore wind turbines
  • Tidal turbines
  • Tankers and FBSOs
  • Pumps and impellers
  • System pressure drop analysis and optimisation


TotalSim can apply it’s expertise in CFD to a huge range of offshore applications, providing valuable insight and understanding to a range of tricky problems.

It is possible to analyse loads on different structures due to currents and waves as well as different wind conditions, providing a detailed picture of the different types of flow around the structure.

TotalSim have worked on a number of safety and legal cases for clients in a confidential nature, ranging from helideck safety studies to loadings on moored vessels.

TotalSim can work on both single and multiphase problems, ranging from single phase aerodynamic or hydrodynamic problems, compressible thermal applications to multiphase flows.

Our optimisation techniques are hugely powerful and can be used for multiple parameter and multiple performance complex problems.  Whether it be minimising pressure drop through a system or maximising efficiency of a turbine blade, TotalSim can help.
