Volume 9, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 68-84

  Separation of suspended droplets in a fluid flow has been a great concern for scientists and technologists. In the current study, the effect of the surface roughness on flow field and the performance of a gas-oil cyclone is studied numerically. The droplets and the turbulent airflow inside the cyclone ...  Read More

Azadeh Mamghaderi; Behzad Rostami; Seyed Hamed Tabatabaie

Volume 7, Issue 2 , April 2018, , Pages 14-34

  In this study, direct laboratory measurements of unsteady-state imbibition test are used in a new approach to obtain relative permeability curves with no predetermined functionality assumptions. Four equations of continuity, Darcy’s law, cumulative oil production, and water fractional flow are ...  Read More
