Modeling of Asphaltene Precipitation and Deposition
The tendency of Asphaltene to deposit and block tubing can potentially lead to production loss and significant cost of remediation. Unlike other deposits, the deposition behavior of Asphaltene is still not fully understood ...
Complex fluids at interfaces and interfaces of complex fluids
The present thesis deals with two independent projects and is consequently divided into two parts. The first part details a computational study of the fluid structure of ring-shaped molecules and their positional and ...
Microstructure and Interfacial Properties of Aqueous Mixtures
Understanding the properties of aqueous mixtures has important implications in applications ranging from enhanced oil recovery to biochemical processes. While there has been considerable effort invested in understanding ...
A Systematic Study of Short and Long Range Interactions in Associating Fluids Using Molecular Theory
Parameters needed for the Statistical Associating Fluid Theory (SAFT) equation of state are usually fit to pure component saturated liquid density and vapor pressure. In this thesis, other sources of information such as ...
