    Brahim DENNAI1*, Mohammed EL Bizani BELBOUKHARI1 , Tawfiq CHEKIFI1, Rachid KHELFAOUl1
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.12, No.3, pp. 102-110, 2016, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2016.012.102
    Abstract Microfluidic systems are used and exploited in various fields, as they are highly specific and developed in their use. The micro devices are used in various analyzes of medical disciplines, chemical and other fields. Our research team "MAAt" within ENERGARID laboratory is in the process of triggered several lines of research in this area, the micro-mixing, separation of micro particles, droplet production. For that, we need tools and micro devices to study the phenomena.. In this work, we present a theoretical study and numerical simulation of micro device (micro diode Tesla). A Diode Tesla is similar to a heart valve… More >

    Experimental study of interfacial phenomena between the heavy oil and maximum solvent concentration as function of injection pressures

    Hameed Muhamad1, Simant Upreti 2, Ali Lohi3, Huu Doan4
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.12, No.3, pp. 111-123, 2016, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2016.012.111
    Abstract Heavy Oil is an up and coming energy resource that is aggressively being sought after as the world’s energy demand increases. As technology continues to improve, this once costly energy source is quickly becoming a more viable alternative. Vapor extraction (Vapex) process is an emerging technology for viscous oil recovery that has gained much attention in the oil industry. The vapor extraction of heavy oil system is presented to describe experimental setups and procedures used to perform different experiments of vape extraction process. The generated experimental data were used to calculate the live oil maximum interfacial solvent concentration as function… More >

    Electro-Deposition of Asphaltenes from Abu Dhabi Crude Oil/Synthetic Formation Water Mixtures

    Hadil Abu Khalifeh1, Hadi Belhaj2
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.12, No.3, pp. 124-135, 2016, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2016.012.124
    Abstract In this work, asphaltenes precipitation and deposition induced by applying an electric field to Abu Dhabi crude oil sample were studied. The asphaltic particle electrical charge and asphaltic deposits mass at different operating conditions were determined. Direct current (DC) was applied between two graphite electrodes dipped in crude oil/synthetic formation water mixture of 240K ppm salinity. Three current densities of 10, 20, and 30 A/m2 were applied. Deposits were collected on the electrodes surfaces and their mass was recorded using low capacity load cells (up to 50g). Anodic and cathodic deposits were observed at different operating conditions. The results revealed… More >
