Simulation Tools for Marine Oil and Gas (ANSYS ASEAN Marine, Oil & Gas Conference 2013) AAMOG 2013

Date: 11 Sep 2013 - 11 Sep 2013

Venue: SIMTech Auditorium, Tower Block, Level 3

Seminar Overview
This event is designed to create greater awareness of engineering simulation on design/cost/NPI/Productive/Quality and its impact on the company’s bottomline. Invited speakers will present topics on advances in engineering simulation for marine, oil and gas industry.

Offshore construction and design projects are complex and require the design and analysis to be performed efficiently and rigorously. Hydrodynamics and structural analyses are vital to the marine, offshore and oil & gas industries to ensure that floating structures meet challenging operational demands such as sea level rise and increased storm activity. 

To facilitate this, engineering simulation software must be powerful, robust and user friendly. Software solutions for the marine/offshore industry from ANSYS, Inc, the established and respected engineering simulation provider, are on focus here: ANSYS AQWA, ANSYS Structural and ANSYS CFD. These simulation solutions provides engineers comprehensive insight into their design and processes, thus enabling innovative ideas to be implemented that balances cost, functionality, reliability and environmental priorities.

ANSYS, Inc and CAD-IT is pleased to invite you to a uniquely positioned event focused on engineering simulation solutions in the Marine Offshore, Oil & Gas industry.

This seminar will provide a perspective on key industrial problems covering concerns in offshore & subsea structures, hydrodynamics, global analysis, process design, equipment and optimization.

Participants will gain insight into how they can use engineering simulation and virtual prototyping to reduce costly experimentation, increase safety and reliability of products in today’s complex oil and gas business.

The seminar will also highlight broader issues of how engineering simulation is used to address technological dependence, environmental & regulatory concerns, and managing risks by integrating simulation early in the design process to help accelerate product development and discover potential problems early in the design cycle.

About the Speakers
Mr Paul Schofield has a degree in civil engineering and has worked in the oil & gas industry for almost 30 years. In recent years, he has been involved in offshore alternative energy such as wind and wave devices. He is also a member of Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME).
Paul's current position at ANSYS, Inc is Principal Engineer and he is based in Houston as part of the ANSYS South regional team. Paul provides pre-sales support for the Americas, Europe and Asia, assisting with WebEx presentations, benchmark creation and technical product training. Paul also works closely with the product development teams for the ANSYS Offshore products such as ANSYS AQWA, which is used for hydrodynamics and mooring analyses. Paul has been conducting training in hydrodynamics analysis for more than 20 years, inclusive of his current role as principal engineer at ANSYS, Inc. He has also interacted and helped to support marine/offshore customers internationally, and carries with him valuable insights of what is happening in the industry and what companies are utilizing to meet design challenges and market demands.

Dr Lim Beng Siong joined SIMTech in 1987 following the development of an aerospace flight simulator configuration system at Brighton University for Rediffusion Simulation in the UK. He pursued his PhD with a  scholarship from the University of Nottingham in the applications of computational intelligence for component design and tool engineering. Prior to his academic pursuit, he served an apprenticeship for 5 years with TIMEX in tool making, process planning, cost estimation and fixture design.  At SIMTech, Beng Siong led several research teams to develop cutters for the machining of Inconel 718 and Ti6A14V, EDM electrode verification system, BGA Inspection System; computer integrated and flexible manufacturing systems, conduct research into prosthetic knee joint implants, daily production scheduling systems, process planning, modular fixture design and automated guided vehicles systems.
In 1992, Beng Siong helped win the first SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers), LEAD (Leadership Excellence and Development in Computer Integrated Manufacturing) university award for an Asian country with the development of an indigenous FMS (Flexible Manufacturing System) within 5 years.
