Improving gas turbines for a cleaner Planet

By • December 16th, 2016

Global trends of heightened fuel prices, clean air regulations, biofuels and greenhouse gas awareness are driving scientists to find answers to cleaner energy technologies. The combined cycle gas turbine is the most efficient and lowest carbon emitting combustion-based power generation system currently available. Prof. Hawkes, from the University of New South Wales, is leading amore…

Integration of Conventional and Digital Core Analysis

By • June 19th, 2015

The calculation of petrophysical properties from micro Xray-CT images is increasingly used to extend and improve conventional core analysis. This proposal seeks to integrate experimental measurements of key petrophysical quantities with direct numerical simulation at the same scale and the same boundary conditions, thus allowing a direct comparison of experiment and simulation for heterogeneous reservoirmore…
