Cross-linked polymer gel is widely used in the oil and gas industry to block high permeability conduits and reduce water cut. The complex nature of this fluid, especially regarding flow in porous media, makes its numerical simulation very time-consuming. This study presents an approach to designing an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model...

The Port of Rotterdam experiences large amounts of siltation from the upstream rivers in its basins and canals every year. Furthermore, container vessels increase in size every decade and therefore require a larger navigational depth. These two factors cause the yearly amount of dredged material to increase. Currently, mainly trailing suction...

Tailings storage facilities (TSF) are engineered structures that retain mixed waste material (known as mine tailings material) from mining processes in liquid or slurry form. One of the issues regarding TSF management is the lack of site investigation and sample analyses, which cause the uncertainty of geotechnical properties of mine tailings...

Siltation of fine (cohesive) sediment in navigation channels and harbour basins may cause serious problems for the shipping industry. Intensive maintenance dredging is required to ensure safe shipping traffic. Conventional dredging methods are highly expensive, and therefore port authorities seek for more efficient solutions to reduce costs. One...

In this study, we introduce the Delft Advanced Research Terra Simulator (DARTS), which employs the Operator-Based Linearization (OBL) approach to provide efficient and precise solutions for non-linear discretized equations, to simulate the polymer flooding process. This compositional simulation framework is feasible for describing complex...

Experimental data showed that high-speed microsprays can effectively disrupt biofilms on their support substratum, producing a variety of dynamic reactions such as elongation, displacement, ripple formation, and fluidization. However, the mechanics underlying the impact of high-speed turbulent flows on biofilm structure is complex under such...

The rheological behavior of many lubricants used in hydrodynamic bearings can reasonably be modeled using the Bingham plastic material model. This behavior is characterized by a strong discontinuity, from a pure solid state to a viscous fluid state depending on the local shear stress. In literature three methods have been presented to model a...

Foam can improve sweep efficiency in gas-injection-enhanced oil recovery. Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is a favored method of foam injection. Laboratory data indicate that foam can be non-Newtonian at low water fractional flow f<sub>w</sub>, and therefore during gas injection in a SAG process. We investigate the implications of this...

Heat and fluid flow in a rectangular channel heat sink equipped with longitudinal vortex generators have been numerically investigated in the range of Reynolds numbers between 25 and 200. Aqueous solutions of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) with different concentrations (200–2000 ppm), which are shear-thinning non-Newtonian liquids, have been...

The method of characteristics, or fractional-flow theory, is extremely useful in understanding complex Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes and in calibrating simulators. One limitation has been its restriction to Newtonian rheology except in rectilinear flow. Its inability to deal with non-Newtonian rheology in polymer and foam EOR has been a...

In this work we present and solve a class of non--Newtonian viscoelastic fluid flow problems. Models for non-Newtonian fluids can be classified into three large groups depending on the type of the constitutive relation used: algebraic, differential and integral. The first type of models are most simple one, the last are the most physically...

Our original article presented computer simulation results for the viscoelastic response of a simple model colloidal suspension. We compared our results for the viscosity with a theoretical prediction of Verberg et al. [R. Verberg, I. M. de Schepper, and E. G. D. Cohen, Phys. Rev. E 55, 3143 (1997)] and found poor agreement. It is suggested in...
