A technique to visualize miscible displacement in porous media using laser and the analysis of the results for different processes are presented in this thesis. After saturating the model made of different sized glass beads with oil, solvent was introduced either under dynamic (injection and...
In the development of a numerical model for the water cycle on Mars, adsorption of water vapour in the Martian regolith acts as a significant sink and retards the transport of mass. Adsorption on Mars cannot be studied directly, so a numerical model was created, and a diffusion sorption...
Parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs) are used as models of transport-reaction phenomena in a variety of different industrial chemical and materials engineering processes, and can yield precise descriptions of process variables with complex temporal and spatially dependent system...
To understand the water cycle on Mars, details of mass and energy transfer between the surface and the atmosphere are of importance. A complete model, involving transient variations of the water in gaseous and solid phases in the atmosphere and the regolith, is developed and solved numerically...
We introduce a new methodology that allows the construction of wave frequency distributions due to growing incoherent whistler-mode waves in the magnetosphere. The technique combines the equations of geometric optics (i.e., raytracing) with the equation of transfer of radiation in an anisotropic...
Increasing demand for energy in the world has made industries to look for economically efficient methods to produce energy. One possible approach is to increase natural gas productions, due to its cleanliness and lower price. However, energy consumption of the cryogenic processes is high in...
Athabasca Bitumen and other heavy hydrocarbon resources are high-mean-molar-mass and structured organic materials with complex phase behaviors at the nano- and micro- meter length scales. Diffusion of light hydrocarbons, and non-hydrocarbons in these resources is of significant interest as new...
Diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) measures the diffusion (i.e. random molecular motion) of water. Since the motion of water is inhibited by cellular membranes, dMRI provides insight into the microstructural characteristics of the tissue. However, distinguishing between small anatomical...
