  • Three–dimensional oil and gas pool–forming dynamic simulation system: principle, method and applications

    Based on the theories and methods of system engineering, the reconstruction of physical space for oil and gas generation, expulsion, migration, accumulation and diffusion is realised by combining the dynamics simulation with topological structure simulation and applying the topological structure simulation. The integral non–linear process of petroleum system is described successfully with the ...

  • The hidden benefits of maturity modelling

    Most 1–D modelling studies are carried out with the explicit objective of calculating maturity and hydrocarbon generation. This focus on bottom–line output has caused most modellers to overlook a major additional value of such studies: the knowledge acquired while building internally consistent geologic models. During model construction one should carefully consider the following factors: events ...

  • Reaching underground resources

    Accessing critical resources such as geothermal energy and natural gas requires drilling — an expensive, energy-intensive, messy process with today's technology. An MIT team has been looking into a more elegant approach. Instead of grinding rock to bits, they would use a continuous beam of energy to vaporize it and then blow out the tiny particles that form with a high-pressure stream of ...

  • SVFlux and SVSlope in UTSA Senior Project - Bell County Earthen Dam

    General This article presents a recent project performed by undergraduate students at The University of Texas at San Antonio. Their project is the culmination their degrees in a capstone class. The objective of the class was to present an opportunity to apply design skills to execution of an open-ended integrated civil engineering design project, including field and laboratory ...

  • Risks of carbamate and organophosphate pesticide mixtures to salmon in the Pacific Northwest

    Salmon populations in the Pacific Northwest are being affected by a variety of environmental stressors including intense fishing pressure, parasites and disease, climatic variability and change, land development, hatchery production, hydropower operations, stormwater runoff, and exposure to toxic contaminants. In recent years, there has been much concern that mixtures of pesticides are causing ...
