Oil Flow Simulation

Proof-of-concept on the use of SPH modeling for simulating oil flows in pipelines.

To demonstrate its feasibility and practical potential, a realistic crude-oil pipe flow within a moderately large section of pipe was modeled and simulated

Rather than a fully filled regime, the flow is of a transition from fully empty to mostly filled, for which SPH modeling is expected to be particularly relevant and competitive against mesh-based methods.

The integrated particle-based fluid simulation platform Neutrino was used for both simulating the flow and generating the visualizations
