Experimental and numerical investigation of mining assisted heavy oil production for the Bati Raman field, Turkey
Canbolat, Serhat; Öztürk, Hasan; Akın, Serhat (2023-01-01)
This research aims to investigate possible ultimate recovery from the largest oil reserve (Bati Raman) in Turkey using a new method called mining-assisted heavy oil production (MAHOP) where declines (tunnels) are excavated from the surface to the reservoir. A series of excavations (galleries) continue along the bottom of the reservoir and proceed along the reservoir's bottom. Fan-shaped steam injection holes that are drilled in the reservoir from the top and sides of the galleries are then used to inject st...
Experimental and numerical investigation of formation damage caused by drilling fluids
İşcan, Abdullah Gürkan; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, permeability impairment caused by drilling fluids and subsequent cleaning and permeability enhancement by back-flow were investigated by means of experimental and simulation studies. Permeability damage caused by three different drilling fluids was measured experimentally by core tests as a function of the filtration pressure and analyzed using a simulator describing the fines migration and retention in porous media. The pore throat plugging criteria for the three drilling fluids were determ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of vortex formation at multiple horizontal intakes
Yıldırım, Tuğçe; Göğüş, Mustafa; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-8)
Although most of the equations given in the literature for critical submergence are for symmetrical single intakes; in practice approach flow conditions are not mainly symmetrical. In this study, formation of the vortices in asymmetrical approach flow conditions was investigated for a multiple water intake structure composed of a reservoir and several pipe systems. Different scenarios were tested when some of the intake units were in operation whereas some others were not. The geometrical and hydraulic...
Experimental and numerical investigation of a counter-rotating boundary layer ingesting propulsion system
Bilyaz, İbrahim Soner; Başkan Perçin, Özge; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2023-1-23)
This study investigates the performance of a boundary layer ingesting (BLI) propulsion system with a counter-rotating propulsor numerically and experimentally. The main benefit driver for a BLI propulsion system is that the propulsor ingests the boundary layer of the aircraft's fuselage, which is slower than the free stream velocity and consumes less power to generate the required thrust. The power-saving coefficient (PSC), the amount of power saved to obtain the same net streamwise force compared to the tr...
Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Torsionally Irregular RC Shear Wall Buildings with Rutherma Breakers
Yakut, Ahmet; Richard, Benjamin; Atanasiu, Gabriela M; Ragueneau, Frederic; Scheer, Stefen; Diler, Seref (Springer, 2015-01-01)
A challenging prototype building having irregularly placed shear walls in plan has been designed and tested on the AZALEE shaking table at the TAMARIS laboratory in CEA/Saclay. The research project, called ENISTAT, was funded by the SERIES project via Transnational Access to the CEA/Saclay facility in France. The project has three main objectives: (1) Study the behaviour of the mock-up under increasing bi-directional horizontal synthetic earthquake records; (2) Attempt to evaluate the experimental results u...
