Numerical simulation of fluid flow, proppant transport and fracture propagation in hydraulic fractures for unconventional reservoirs. (2020)
Thesis
SURI, Y. 2020. Numerical simulation of fluid flow, proppant transport and fracture propagation in hydraulic fractures for unconventional reservoirs. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

The distribution of proppant injected in hydraulic fractures significantly affects fracture-conductivity and well-performance. The proppant transport and suspension in thin fracturing fluid used in unconventional reservoirs are considerably differe...

Improvement to hydrocyclone used in separating particles from produced water in the oil and gas industry. (2020)
Thesis
ADEWOYE, A.J. 2020. Improvement to hydrocyclone used in separating particles from produced water in the oil and gas industry. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1357822

Hydrocyclone is used to separate particles from produced water. It can be used in different industries, including oil and gas, water treatment and pharmaceutical (among others). The hydrocyclone can effectively separate particles larger than 10μm, bu... Read More about Improvement to hydrocyclone used in separating particles from produced water in the oil and gas industry..

CFD modelling of flow-induced vibration under multiphase flow regimes. (2020)
Thesis
ASIEGBU, N.M. 2020. CFD modelling of flow-induced vibration under multiphase flow regimes. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Internal multiphase flow-induced vibration (MFIV) in pipe bends poses serious problems in oil and gas, nuclear and chemical flow systems. The problems include: high amplitude displacement of the pipe structure due to resonance; fatigue failure due to...
