Although evaporation is considered to be a surface phenomenon, the rate of molecular transport across a liquid–vapor boundary is strongly dependent on the coupled fluid dynamics and heat transfer in the bulk fluids. Recent experimental thermocouple measurements of the temperature field near the...
Crude oils contain a distribution of molecules with diverse chemical structures and molecular weights. Asphaltenes are considered the most problematic of these structures. We have investigated the adsorption and aggregation of asphaltenes on surfaces using scanning probe microscopy. Modifying the...
Materials Characterization and Growth Mechanisms of ZnO, ZrO2, and HfO2 Deposited by Atomic Layer DepositionDownload
Gallium Nitride (GaN) is recognized as one of the best candidates for high-power high-frequency metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect-transistors (MOSFETs). The critical component to enable this technology is the development of a robust oxide with low density of defects and preferential mobility...
A calorimeter for the deposition of metal during free-flight GMAW was developed for the purpose of measuring droplet heat content in Ni/WC tubular wires. By approximating the thermal gradients within the calorimeter to be second order polynomials the energy transferred to the calorimeter by the...
Reservoir Geological Uncertainty Reduction and Its Applications in Reservoir Development OptimizationDownload
Three different studies related to geological uncertainty reduction in reservoir applications are performed in this thesis. The first study proposes an optimal realization reduction framework for quantifying geological uncertainty. The second study applies the optimal realization reduction...
Probing the Molecular Interactions of an Asphaltene Model Compound in Organic Solvents and Aqueous Solutions by Surface Forces Apparatus (SFA)Download
A fundamental understanding of the molecular interactions between asphaltene molecules in bulk and at oil-water interface is of great value in crude oil production. Yet, the chemical composition and molecular structures of asphaltenes are not fully understood. The objective of this study is to...
It is difficult to join high strength alloy steel which are produced by thermo mechanical controlled processing and get overmatched properties on the welds and heat affected zone (HAZ) when submerged arc welding (SAW) is used as joining process. Circumferential welds made in the mill to join...
This thesis is focused on the design of a series of bi-metallic catalyst for enhancing the hydrogen sorption kinetics of magnesium hydride. We have utilized thin films deposited by magnetron sputtering technique as model systems to study various alloys and compositions. It has been known that the...
The toxic elemental mercury (Hg0) released from coal-fired flue gases is a huge threat to the environment and health of human beings. In this work, silver nanoparticles (NPs), nano ferrite, manganese dioxide, zinc oxide and copper oxide were successfully deposited on graphene oxide (GO) and...
Chitosan, a naturally occurring polymer, was studied as a potential selective depressant in the differential flotation of sulfide minerals. In single mineral flotation tests, chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite and pyrite were depressed to different extents. However, in the differential flotation of...
