The extraction of bitumen (heavy oil) from the oil sands is predominantly achieved through a water-based technology. This involves a slurrying process, typically called conditioning, which is categorized into three equally important steps: bitumen-sand liberation, bitumen coalescence, and...
The objective of this thesis was to develop a novel understanding of the mechanics of two phase gas-liquid flows and sprays injected through industrial effervescent nozzles. This was done using detailed experimental investigations and scaling for two-phase flows and sprays. This study helps to...
Interactions between droplets were studied using two lattice Boltzmann methods (LBMs). The Shan-Chen LBM, in which repulsive forces between fluids maintain phase separation, was used to simulate systems with three immiscible components. The simulations demonstrated the three equilibrium...
