Investigation of sand transport in an undulated pipe using computational fluid dynamics. (2017)
Journal Article
TEBOWEI, R., HOSSAIN, M., ISLAM, S.Z., DROUBI, M.G. and OLUYEMI, G. 2018. Investigation of sand transport in an undulated pipe using computational fluid dynamics. Journal of petroleum science and engineering [online], 162, pages 747-762. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.petrol.2017.11.003

A CFD model has been implemented to investigate the effects the pipe undulation on sand transport. Of particular interest of the present study is the sand deposition in small angled V-inclined bend relevant to oil and gas subsea flowlines where sand...
