VIBES allows engineers to simulate drillstring vibrations with a particular focus on the drillbit.
Design drillstrings from the top to the bottom
VIBES allows application engineers to easily handle drill strings, simulation parameters, and resulting vibration data. It comes with a BHA editor & database for modeling complex BHA designs
Generate time response results
VIBES computes the time response of relevant dynamic variables in the system such as RPM, WOB, TOB, bit centerline trajector, stick-slip intensity, stick-slip period, accelerations, hole coverage, etc...
Generate stability maps
VIBES computes stability maps which quantify the risk of stick-slip in the RPM-WOB domain thus providing safe drilling zones.
Combined with the stick-slip stability map, the ROP performance map is a useful tool to find optimal drilling paths in the RPM-WOB domain by minimizing stick-slip and simultaneously maximizing ROP.
