Application of Foam for Mobility Control in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Process
This thesis focuses on the application of foam for mobility control in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process. The performance of foam and surfactants was evaluated by systematic laboratory study. This includes the screening ...
Elucidating the connection between cell population heterogeneity and genetic regulatory architecture in specific artificial networks
Understanding the expression patterns of simple, synthetic gene regulatory networks will not only shed light into the complexity of naturally occurring networks, but it will also provide a platform for expression control ...
Stochasticity and cell population heterogeneity in an artificial lac operon genetic network
The purpose of this work is two-fold: (1) to develop a novel mathematical and computational framework that incorporates the major sources of cell population heterogeneity and (2) to use this framework to demonstrate the ...
Derivation of an infinite-dilution activity coefficient model and application to two-component vapor-liquid equilibria data
Infinite-dilution fugacity coefficients were obtained for the binary system fluorene/phenanthrene at thirteen temperatures by fitting total pressure across the entire mole fraction range by a computer routine. A thermodynamically ...
Heat transfer during condensation inside a horizontal tube
Heat transfer data were taken for methanol and Freon-12 condensing inside a horizontal tube over considerable ranges of pressure, temperature driving force, liquid loading, and vapor velocity. A single mechanism for heat ...
Interaction of platelets in flowing blood with collagen-coated surfaces: Effect of inhibitors of platelet function orvon Willebrand factor binding domains
A parallel-plate flow chamber and epifluorescence video microscopy with digital image processing techniques were used to investigate the mechanisms of mural thrombus formation and to evaluate new potentially useful ...
LIQUID CRYSTAL TO MICROEMULSION TRANSITIONS IN ANIONIC SURFACTANT-OIL-BRINE SYSTEMS
Various anionic surfactant-oil-brine systems were studied to understand the transition between liquid crystal and microemulsion phases produced by changes in composition. This work involved equilibrium phase behavior studies ...
A study of cracked gasoline (continued) and the reaction of bromine with primary aliphatic alcohols
Abstract Not Available.
Solubility, length characterization, and cryo-TEM of pristine and functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes in surfactant and superacid systems, with application to spinning SWNT fibers
Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have remarkable properties: the thermal conductivity of diamond, the electrical conductivity of copper, and mechanical properties greater than steel at a sixth of the weight. If these ...
Mechanisms of symmetric and asymmetric drainage of foam films
The drainage of horizontal thin liquid films produced from aqueous solutions of ionic surfactants was studied experimentally, using videomicroscopy and interference techniques, for several surfactants in a wide range of ...
