Petroleum and Environmental Engineers by George V Chilingar

By George V Chilingar

Electrokinetics is a time period utilized to a gaggle of physicochemical phenomena concerning the delivery of fees, motion of charged debris, results of utilized electrical strength and fluid delivery in quite a few porous media to permit for a wanted migration or stream to be accomplished. those phenomena contain electrokinetics, electroosmosis, ion migration, electrophoresis, streaming strength and electroviscosity. those phenomena are heavily similar and all give a contribution to the shipping and migration of other ionic species and chemical compounds in porous media. The physicochemical and electrochemical homes of a porous medium and the pore fluid, and the magnitudes of the utilized electric capability all influence the path and speed of the fluid circulate. additionally, an electric capability is generated upon the compelled passage of fluid sporting charged debris via a porous medium.

The use of electrokinetics within the box of petroleum and environmental engineering used to be groundbreaking whilst George Chilingar pioneered its use many years in the past, however it has in basic terms been in recent times that its complete power has been studied.  this is often the 1st quantity of its variety ever written, providing the petroleum or environmental engineer a pragmatic “how to” e-book on utilizing electrokinetics for extra effective and higher oil restoration and restoration from tough reservoirs.

This groundbreaking quantity is a must have for any petroleum engineer operating within the box, and for college kids and school in petroleum engineering departments worldwide.
