Effect of Desorption Purge Gas Oxygen Impurity on Heel Formation During Regeneration of Beaded Activated Carbon Saturated with Organic VaporsDownload
Irreversible adsorption or heel formation during cyclic adsorption/regeneration of high molecular weight volatile organic compounds (VOCs) onto activated carbon decreases its adsorption capacity and lifetime. The effect of regeneration purge gas oxygen impurity on activated carbon performance,...
Direct Imaging and Subsequent Modeling of the Cement Microstructure and Integrity of Cement/Casing and Cement/Formation InterfacesDownload
As a key component of the wellbore barrier system, cement provides zonal isolation and structural support during the entire life of a well. However, even when the cement is properly placed in the well, the zonal isolation may be lost over time. Failure to establish and maintain an effective...
This thesis examines the issues related to calibrating digital cameras and lenses, which is an essential prerequisite for the extraction of precise and reliable 3D metric information from 2D images. The techniques used to calibrate a Canon PowerShot A70 camera with 5.4 mm zoom lens and a...
Over the past decades, the increased volume of oil-field waste disposal and the recognition of the environment and health impacts from conventional and traditional disposal approaches have led to an increased demand for solution-mined salt caverns as an effective method for permanent abandonment...
New sanitation is developed based on wastewater source-diversion and on-site treatment to maximize resource recovery from domestic wastewater. Blackwater stream collected from toilets is rich in organics and nutrients, and the rest greywater stream contains major water content. The primary...
CO2 separation from flue gas streams is an essential issue as it is the main anthropogenic greenhouse gas contributing to global warming. Commercially used methods for CO2 capture includes absorption in liquid amine solutions which has its own drawbacks such as pipeline corrosion, oxidative...
The Application of Front End Planning and Special Purpose Simulation Templates to Drainage Tunnel ConstructionDownload
The Construction Industry Institute (CII) has a best practice under the heading “Front End Planning” (1995) that is meant to ensure that projects are as complete, as optimized, and as certain as possible throughout the project life cycle. In order to demonstrate this, the Project Definition...
Effect of Cellulose Nanocrystal Particles on Rheology, Transport and Mechanical Properties of Oil Well Cement SystemsDownload
The increase in oil consumption during the past few decades, coupled with oil/gas extraction from shale in the recent years has increased drilling and cementing demands. Well cementing operation is one of the most crucial and important steps in any well completion. However, since it takes place...
Markerless 3D Assessment of Severity and Progression of Scoliosis Using Surface Topography on Isolated Back ScansDownload
The objectives of the thesis were to: 1. Determine if open source software can be use in markerless asymmetry analysis of surface topography. 2. Determine if isolated back scans can be used in markerless asymmetry analysis of surface topography. Markerless asymmetry analysis of surface...
