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 ...
The Behavior of Surfactants in Water / Oil System by Dissipative Particle Dynamics
Dissipative Particle Dynamics is a mesoscale simulation model that is widely used in simulation of complex fluids. This method simulates the fluid in the scales between microscopic and macroscopic scales. The scope of this ...
Advances in Thermodynamic Modeling of Nonpolar Hydrocarbons and Asphaltene Precipitation in Crude Oils
In this work, we present improved correlations to calculate PC-SAFT parameters for hydrocarbon components based on molecular weight and refractive index (or density) at 20 °C without prior knowledge of the hydrocarbon ...
Thermodynamic Modeling of Hydrocarbon Mixtures with Application to Polymer Phase Behavior and Asphaltene Precipitation
A new equation of state framework is proposed that hybridizes the classical cubic equations of state (EOS) with the chain term of the SAFT EOS. This model offers an improved description of the molecular features of long-chain ...
Thermodynamic Modeling of Fluid Distribution and Phase Behavior in Nanoporous Shale
Understanding fluid partitioning and phase behavior in unconventional shale is essential for reservoir characterization and production prediction. Unlike in conventional reservoirs where hydrocarbons are stored in pores ...
