Treatment of crude-oil contaminated soil using biosurfactants

  In this research, the effect of Saponin as a bio surfactant for crude-oil removal by the concentration of 10000 and 30000 ppm in a column soil sample was evaluated. The experimental parameters and their value levels investigated were: concentration of surfactant solutions (0.05, 0.1 and 0.2%-mass); pH (7, 9 and 11); Alkali (NaOH) and polymer (Xanthan Gum) (0.6 and 0.1%-mass) and (0.7 and 0.2%-mass)...

Simulation, control and sensitivity analysis of crude oil distillation unit

  Steady-state  and dynamic simulation play important roles in investigation of refinery units. Therefore, simulation can help this investigation and behavior assessment. In this paper, simulation was done by commercial software. In fact, because of solving many state equations simultaneously and using control theory, dynamic simulation has more significant impact than steady-state simulation. Flow,...

Identifying the flow dimension in fractured rock using an interference test

  The actual flow dimension in fractured rock may be between 2-D cylindrical flow and 1-D linear flow. This paper demonstrated the importance of the method used to identify the flow dimension in fractured rock correctly. A case study of a long-duration interference test was presented to illustrate the application of Barker’s type curves and to identify a flow dimension in fractured rock. It was difficult...
