Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling of critical velocity for sand transport flow regimes in multiphase pipe bends. (2016)
Thesis
TEBOWEI, R. 2016. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling of critical velocity for sand transport flow regimes in multiphase pipe bends. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The production and transportation of hydrocarbon fluids in multiphase pipelines could be severely hindered by particulate solids deposit - such as the sand particles that can accompany hydrocarbon production. Knowledge of the flow characteristics of... Read More about Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling of critical velocity for sand transport flow regimes in multiphase pipe bends..

Journal Article
LIU, Y., ISLAM, S., PAVLOVSKAIA, E. and WIERCIGROCH, M. 2016. Optimization of the vibro-impact capsule system. Strojniški vestnik: journal of mechanical engineering [online], 62(7-8), pages 430-439. Available from: https://doi.org/10.5545/sv-jme.2016.3754

Optimization of the vibro-impact capsule system for the best progression is considered in this paper focusing on the choice of the excitation parameters and the shape of the capsule. Firstly, the fastest and the most efficient progressions are obtain... Read More about Optimization of the vibro-impact capsule system..

The prediction of erosion damage due to sand presence during hydrocarbon production is a major threat to the integrity of the production facilities. Sand production from oil and gas reservoirs can cause a significant damage to different pipeline comp...
