Numerical and experimental study of the impact of temperature on relative permeability in an oil and water system. (2021)
Thesis
BALOGUN, Y. 2021. Numerical and experimental study of the impact of temperature on relative permeability in an oil and water system. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1357866

Relative permeability is affected by several flow parameters, predominantly operating temperature and fluid viscosity. Fluid viscosity changes with temperature, which correspondingly affects the relative permeability. Temperature is believed to have...
