Tecplot RS 2019 R1 – Well Path Trend Analysis

The highlight of Tecplot RS 2019 Release 1 is the new Well Path. This feature allows users to easily view property trends along any well path. The existing Well Editor dialog has been completely redesigned. It is now easier for users to create new wells from scratch and to make modifications to existing wells. And for CMG users, we now support the newer SR3 three format. […]

Making Sense of the Transition to Turbulence

Turbulence is a complex process — and Jeff Chu is a graduate student who is eager to unravel the riddles of this common yet mysterious phenomenon. Conducting basic research at the University of Texas, Austin, Chu’s purpose is to closely look at flow structures to understand what causes turbulence to form. Here are the steps he takes to untangle and understand the complicated phenomenon of the transition to turbulence. Untangling […]

Bringing More Excitement to Auto Racing with Mushroom-Busting Designs

Tecplot Chorus Helps Swift Engineering Inc. Change Mushroom-shaped Wakes on Formula Race Cars to Make Passing Easier and Auto Racing More Exciting The race does not always go to the swift, especially when it’s Formula auto racing, where the wake of a race car can be turbulent enough to prevent others from passing it, no matter how fast they’re going. “That can make it pretty boring to watch, as well,” […]

Reservoir Simulation Tests the Limits of Built-in Post Processors

As computing power has increased, the volume of simulation data that reservoir engineers must work with has gone up exponentially. Working with so much important data, it’s critical that engineers not miss anything. Vast amounts of money could be wasted if data is overlooked. And with all that data, it’s very likely some could be. For instance, before an oil company goes to the expense of producing a field, reservoir […]
