Experimental and numerical modeling of direct injection of CO 2 into carbonate formations
Izgec, O.; Demiral, B.; Bertin, H.; Akın, Serhat (Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE); 2006-11-20)
Sequestration of carbon dioxide in geological formations is an alternative way to manage the carbon emitted by combustion of fossil fuels. Results of an experimental and numerical modeling study aiming to investigate the important aspects of injection of CO2 in carbonate formations are presented. Different from sandstones, in carbonates surface reaction rates are very high, so mass transfer often limits the overall reaction rate, leading to highly non-uniform dissolution patterns. Often, large flow channels...
Experimental and numerical investigation of carbon sequestration in saline aquifers
Izgec, O.; Demiral, B.; Bertin, H.; Akın, Serhat (null; 2005-07-28)
Because of the global warming threat posed by greenhouse gases, mainly by CO2, some strategies were proposed. Along those, disposal and long term storage, of greenhouse gases is important for reducing global warming. Aquifers represent the most widely available and the second largest, naturally occurring potential store for CO2. Although there are a number of mathematical modeling studies related to injection of CO2 in deep saline aquifers, experimental studies are limited and most studies focus to sandston...
Experimental and numerical investigation of damage process in composite laminates under low-velocity impact
Topaç, Ömer Tanay; Çöker, Demirkan; Gürses, Ercan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2016)
Damage sensitivity of composites under out-of-plane dynamic loading, and its limited detectability on a structure has long remained a prominent problem in industry. In this study, simulations are compared with the real-time damage formation scheme, with the aim of increasing confidence in failure predictions. Drop-weight impact experiments are carried out on a [0/90]_s CFRP beam laminate. Initiation and progression of damage, consisting of matrix cracks and delamination, are visualized via ultra-high-speed ...
Experimental and numerical study of flow and thermal transport in fractured rock
Tavakkoli Osgouei, Yashar; Akın, Serhat (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-01-01)
An experimental and numerical study was carried out to investigate matrix-fracture thermal transport in fractured rock. Two different synthetically fractured core plugs were used during the flow-through experiments while core plugs' outer surface was maintained at two different constant temperatures. To investigate the matrix-fracture thermal transport, cold water was injected through the single fracture core plugs at different flow rates. A film type heat flux sensor was used in the fractured core plug to ...
Experimental And Numerical Investigation Of Impact Induced Damage Progression in Fiber Reinforced Composites
Gürses, Ercan; Çöker, Demirkan (null; 2016-08-21)
Damage process in composites subjected to low-velocity impact is investigated both experimentally and numerically. Drop-weight impact experiments are carried out, in which a model unidirectional [0/90]s carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminate beam is impacted by a cylindrical head creating an almost uniform two-dimensional loading condition. Damage sequence is visualized in real-time via ultra-high-speed camera and the resulting final failure patterns are characterized by a digital microscope. I...
