Knowledge base for designing casing strings

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This paper covers the application of an expert system to casing design and some special interfacing techniques. It uses a FORTRAN program to determine the casing design after the correct casing data has been selected. The expert system selects the proper casing elements from a huge database.By keeping the database separated from the program, a person in the materials department can update the database without affecting the program.
