Assist. Prof. Sumi Siddiqua, her Capstone research group, and the School of Engineering are the recipients of a generous software donation from Pipe Flow Software, a software design firm based in the UK.
Capstone, a fourth-year requirement for all School of Engineering students, provides students with the opportunity to investigate the feasibility of a new design, process, or method of production. The capstone team will work on a project in the energy sector, titled “Enhanced Oil Recovery using CO2Injection.”
Pipe-Flow Expert will form an integral part of the analysis and design for the team’s project. They will use this software to model the flow of Carbon Dioxide for a CO2injection pilot program specifically analyzing pressure drops and losses through various pipeline arrangements and networks.
The use of this software in a modelling capacity will allow the team to determine the best possible design for a very complex, multidisciplinary engineering project.
After the team approached Pipe Flow Software, the company kindly offered to donate three single-user licenses to Dr. Siddiqua and the School of Engineering.
