IBM and CD-adapco Announce Important Oil & Gas Simulation Seminars for Houston

    "Downhole Dynamics" and "Petrochemical Plant and Equipment Improvement"
    to Showcase Practical Business Benefits of 3-D Simulation on High-
    Performance Computers, on October 21

    HOUSTON, Oct. 8 /CNW/ - IBM and CD-adapco are pleased to announce two
important Oil and Gas industry seminars in Houston on October 21, each of
which will explore the business benefits of using 3-D simulation
(Computer-Aided Engineering and Computational Fluid Dynamics-CAE/CFD) to
tackle tough engineering challenges in the development and operation of
equipment and subsystems within key segments of the industry.
    "Downhole Dynamics" (9:00 AM - 1:30 PM, including lunch) will explore how
Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation of flow, thermal, and
stress/vibration performance in drilling and development of wellbores for
optimal petrochemical production can provide significant advantage in
overcoming engineering development challenges in key areas.
    "Petrochemical Plant and Equipment Improvement" (Noon - 4:30 PM,
including lunch) will show how simulation of flow, thermal, and
stress/vibration performance during design and modification of plant systems
and equipment to improve performance and extend useful operating life can
provide significant advantage in overcoming key development challenges.
    "IBM and CD-adapco have a long history of delivering leading edge
solutions to Oil and Gas customers. CD-adapco's CAE/CFD solutions combined
with IBM's technologies will provide customers a fast, scalable and a highly
available environment that improves customer productivity and brings huge time
savings to our customers," said Par Hettinga, Segment Manager - CAE and
Petroleum, within the IBM Systems & Technology Group - Deep Computing.
    "We have found great resonance for our CAE/CFD solutions within the
global Oil and Gas industry and are pleased to have the opportunity, along
with IBM, to showcase relevant technologies and some customer case examples in
Houston, in connection with our recent establishment of a full-service Houston
office," said Dennis Nagy, Vice President of Marketing and Business
Development and Energy Sector Director at CD-adapco.
    Both seminars will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn-Houston Galleria. For
