Nonlinear Dynamics of Reservoir Mixtures
Nonlinear Dynamics of Reservoir Mixtures provides an overview of modeling techniques for solving nonlinear problems in hydrodynamics, with an emphasis on compositional flows in porous reservoirs. The volume focuses on nonlinear wave techniques for simulating and predicting fluid dynamic processes in petroleum reservoirs and discusses general applications of these models for other fluids.
Topics covered include inhomogeneous space structures in reservoir processes, gradient models for analyzing changes in thermodynamic and hydrodynamic fluid properties, phase transition dynamics in fluids and rock minerals, and wetting phenomena. The book also discusses the stages involved in developing compositional simulators for enhanced oil recovery and describes applications used in hydrocarbon fields in the former USSR.
Nonlinear Dynamics of Reservoir Mixtures provides excellent reference material for mathematicians, petroleum engineers, exploration geophysicists, and mechanical engineers. It is also a useful compositional modeling text for graduate students in the earth sciences and in petroleum and chemical engineering.
