Characterization and rheology of water-in-oil emulsion from deepwater fields
Seafloor pipeline transport of viscous crude oil may be problematic because of high oil viscosity. This problem is compounded when water cut increases and stable emulsions form that have apparent viscosities significantly ...
Modeling vapor-liquid-solid phase behavior in natural gas systems
This thesis proposes modeling phase behavior, including the solid phase, during gas processing. Failure to accurately predict solid phase formation or freezing of CO2, hydrates, and water ice causes plugging and equipment ...
Carbon nanotubes thermal conductivity analysis using molecular dynamics simulations
Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations are used to determine the thermal conductivities of (5,5) single wall carbon nanotubes. By fixing the temperatures of opposing ends of an armchair single wall carbon nanotube ...
