  • Production performance prediction during steam assisted gravity drainage process in anisotropic reservoirs

    Although steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) technology is an effective thermal recovery process for heavy oil reservoirs, it consumes a mountain of natural gas and produces tons of greenhouse gas. Therefore, it is of great importance to predict the production performance during production period. In this paper, we extend Reis's research (Reis, 1992) to calculate SAGD production performance in ...

  • Urban drainage system planning and design – challenges with climate change and urbanization: a review

    Urban drainage systems are in general failing in their functions mainly due to non-stationary climate and rapid urbanization. As these systems are becoming less efficient, issues such as sewer overflows and increase in urban flooding leading to surge in pollutant loads to receiving water bodies are becoming pervasive rapidly. A comprehensive investigation is required to understand these factors ...

  • Innovative technologies for management of stormwater and combined sewer flows

    Stormwater flows have historically been considered as harmless. Studies have shown that these flows cannot be dismissed as easily. Chebbo (1992), Marsalek et al.,(1997) and others have shown that stormwater is a source of diffuse pollution with a high source of total suspended solids (TSS), adsorbed hydrocarbons (HC) and nutrient loads (N, P, etc..). All these factors influence the quality of the ...
