Knowledge of settling behavior of particles in various types of fluids is indispensable to design and optimize numerous industrial operations such as cuttings transport in oil and gas well drilling, proppant transport in hydraulic fracturing operations, and so on. Most of the models developed so...
Experimental Investigation of Near-well Fluid Mechanics on the Scaling Mechanism in Narrow Rectangular SlotsDownload
This experimental study investigates the effect of near-well fluid mechanics on the scaling failure mechanism specific to SAGD production well. The scaling failure mechanism can be triggered by the pressure drop phenomenon and causes the plugging of the slots in the oilfields. The scale formation...
Investigating the Performance of Randomly Patterned Superhydrophobic Surfaces in Laminar and Turbulent Channel FlowsDownload
Superhydrophobic surfaces (SHSs) have been investigated based on their success in water repellency, anti-fouling, and drag reducing effects seen in nature (Neinhuis & Bartlott 1997; Kreuz et al. 2001). SHSs utilize a low surface energy material with a microscale surface roughness to prevent water...
Effervescent atomization has been a topic of considerable investigation in the literature due to its important advantages over other atomization mechanisms. This work contributes to the development of both effervescent atomizers and also laser-based techniques for spray investigation In order to...
Wind Tunnel Investigation of the Effect of Duct and Cross-flow on Small Propellers for Unmanned Aerial VehiclesDownload
The expanding field of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) has introduced a variety of flight operating conditions and thus, performance requirements. As a method to improve performance in the propulsion systems of UAVs, two topics of interest are emphasized in this thesis: the potential improvements...
