Development of Corrosion-Erosion Model within the Frame of OpenFOAM

Supervisor: Professor Jennifer Wen
PhD student: Alok Sawant

The erosion and corrosion of pipelines can cause serious disruption to operation. The project is aimed at ivestigating the hydrodynamic effects on the potential of pipeline erosion and corrosion. In order to
facilitate this study, a predictive tool will be developed within the frame of open source CFD code, OpenFOAM with appropriate sub-models to be implemented to address the underlying physics
