Flow simulations solve WHRSG vibration issues

Petróleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) has used computational fluid dynamics (CFD), an analytical simulation tool for studying fluid mechanics, to determine possible causes of and solutions to flow-induced vibrations (FIVs) in a waste heat-recovery steam generator (WHRSG) of the residue fluid catalytic cracking (RFCC) unit at its 53,000-b/d Capuava refinery (Recap) in Mauá, São Paulo, Brazil.
