Schlumberger VMGSim 10.0 build 04.2018 | 905.2 mb

Virtual Materials Group has unveiled VMGSim 10.0, is a world-class, rigorous and comprehensive steady-state process simulator developed with an integrated flowsheet design in a user-friendly, modern environment.

VMGSim 10.0 is packed with new and enhanced functionality designed to increase your productivity and the fidelity of your models.

Whether you work in downstream, mid-stream or upstream industries, this latest version is sure to have something for you. If you are working with distribution networks, make sure to check out our new pipeline visualization module. Complex flow assurance studies are only a few clicks away in both steady state and dynamics. The VMGSim Dynamics engine brings powerful improvements to its internal technology, such as a multi-rate integrator and a feature to "accelerate to steady state". Allow your multi-core processor to crunch the numbers while you study any process, from a flaring or pigging scenario to an NGL production plant. Everything you need is inside the same simulator.

Our unparalleled refinery reactors just keep on getting better. In addition to improvements to our kinetics, oil characterization and thermodynamics, this release boasts rigorous hydrocracker, hydrotreater and visbreaker models. As with our existing suite of reactor models all of these are built to be easily tuned and integrated into your refinery-wide simulation models.

In addition VMGSim 10.0 includes a new membrane unit operation, detailed fired heater, emissions manager, and much more.

VMGSim 10.0 Release Highlights:

- Added a dedicated tab to display profiles that are typical to flow assurance such as hydrates, waxes, phase envelope.
- Elevation profile import with GIS data (lat / lon).
- Overall improvements to the layout of form to input pipe details - this includes new options to input elevation profiles.
- Ability to integrate different parts of a model with different step sizes, and to adjust the step sizes based on convergence and error magnitude.
- Option in integrator to use 2nd order BDF integration.
- Feature to accelerate to steady state / stop when steady state reached.
- Shortcut thermodynamic models for faster simulations.

About Schlumberger VMGSim. Our flagship product; VMGSim is a world-class, rigorous and comprehensive steady-state process simulator developed with an integrated flowsheet design in a user-friendly, modern environment.

- Providing unparalleled model sophistication and precision
VMGSim is used around the world to model existing processes and to design new facilities from the ground up. With over 20,000 chemicals, more than 80 thermodynamic property packages and hundreds of unit operations, VMGSim provides unparalleled model sophistication and precision, giving you more time to solve processing challenges creatively. As a result, you'll find innovative ways to increase the value of your product while reducing your operating costs and wasted material. Let VMGSim be like your own engineering advisor: propagating information, anticipating your questions, and suggesting effective methods for model development and exploration. Better still, it builds your models based on rigorous thermodynamic relationships and needs only the information absolutely required to do so, saving you time and processing power.
- Real-time process calculations
Experiment with different equipment configurations in your simulation models to see the effects of changes to the whole system instantly and economically. VMGSim does this by instantly calculating process changes, intelligently propagating information, and continually monitoring degrees of freedom when you modify any unit operation parameters or process conditions.
- Bi-directional information propagation
Model your plants using a relatively small number of inputs because VMGSim can extract only the most useful information from your data. That information is then spread throughout your flowsheet automatically, allowing you to develop creative solutions to extremely difficult problems you may not be able to easily solve using traditional sequential simulators. VMGSim tracks all of your data inputs, making it possible to immediately see what was added to the system and the result. The bi-directional information propagation capability also eliminates the need for artificial recycle blocks and simultaneous convergence of recycles and controllers throughout your flowsheet.
- Automatic degrees of freedom monitoring
VMGSim is a true Gibbs-based simulator that is capable of monitoring each variable's state and its thermodynamic significance. By means of the Gibbs phase rule, with enough degrees of freedom fulfilled, calculations are automatically completed and the results transmitted throughout your flowsheet. Simulations are automatically recalculated every time you change the value of a variable without the need for special estimates. You can now concentrate on understanding your process while VMGSim handles the math.
