Craig Booth



Craig graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with First Class Honours from UWA in 2015. His Ph.D. project is applying Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to internal and external flow assurance applications. Using simulations of pipes and FSR’s 1 & 2 inch autoclaves he is investigating the appropriate method to scale between different autoclaves and how to directly scale the dynamics observed in stirred cells to full-scale pipelines. In the external flow assurance space, CFD is being used to resolve the turbulent flow fields that are occur in and around a failed Blowout Preventer. By determining how these fields interact with oil and water the droplet size that would occur can be determined. While the droplet size distribution from a blowout is important for disaster planning, the method will hopefully be generic enough to apply to any system using a jet to mix two or more different phases.
