For more than three decades starting in the late 1970s, Oilgear wrote its own proprietary code for simulating complex and dynamic physical events. Oilgear’s early multi-physics simulations included hydraulic, mechanical, and electrical elements and went so far as to properly capture fluid transients and thermal effects.
In 2012, Oilgear transitioned to using SimulationX software. SimulationX is the the gold standard for modeling highly dynamic, real-world phenomena and has extensive libraries of proven building-blocks for creating simulations.
With SimulationX, Oilgear can generate extremely detailed models of our proprietary products, and then encode them into a “black box” that we can offer to our customers. This ensures that Oilgear customers have the most accurate models of our products within their system-level models.
A ONE-STOP-SHOP FOR ANALYSIS
Oilgear offers a complete suite of hydraulic product and system analysis services, making Oilgear a one-stop-shop for your analysis needs.
Under one roof, Oilgear offers system simulation, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA), and some of the most dynamic hydraulic testing capability in the world. This enables Oilgear to quickly build real-world results its software simulations, ensuring that the computer model of the system is as accurate as possible.
Any time there is a critical need to understand a complex physical event that includes hydraulic, mechanical, and/or electrical elements, it’s prudent to develop a simulation.
Some of the simulation analysis projects that Oilgear has recently participated in include:
Offshore Emergency Disconnect Sequence (EDS) riser recoil analysis and product development
Water-hammer (i.e. pressure spike) mitigation and product development
Offshore motion compensation system design analysis
Hydraulic press (i.e. forging, extrusion, wood) control system analysis
Mining rock crusher tramp event simulation and product development
Subsea pressure control system simulation and troubleshooting
Safety shutdown reaction timing
Gas and liquid hose burst simulation and product development
Chemical injection system hydro-mechanical analysis
Water-jet cutting pressure variation analysis and product development
Subsea blowout preventer (BOP) control analysis and product development
