Abstract

Embodiments of systems, program product, and methods for controlling drilling fluid pressures are provided. These embodiments, for example, can provide dynamic density control with highly adaptive, real-time, process-control and are scalable to any rig, large or small, on land or water. Combined static and dynamic stresses and displacements can be determined continuously at strategic locations in and around the wellbore of a well so that insitu and operational induced pressure window limitations at specific weak-points or other locations of interest are controlled.
