Tubular String Characterization in High Temperature High Pressure (HTHP) Oil and Gas Wells

 High temperature, high oil pressure, and gas well completion testing have always been a technical challenge and basic theoretical research is one of the key factors needed to ensure a successful completion test. The completion test basic theory includes: a stress analysis of the completion string, completion string buckling behaviour, and temperature and pressure distribution prediction.

Differential Scanning Calorimetry: Applications in Fat and Oil Technology

 Differential Scanning Calorimetry: Applications in Fat and Oil Technology provides a complete summary of the scientific literature about differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), a well-known thermo-analytical technique that currently has a large set of applications covering several aspects of lipid technology.

 The book is divided into three major sections. The first sectio

Shape Casting: Fourth International Symposium 2011

In a career spanning almost six decades, Prof. John T. Berry has made significant contributions towards building our understanding of solidification and process-structure-property relationships in shaped castings.

Celebrating his contributions, the Fourth International Shape Casting Symposium, which takes place at the 2011 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition, has been organized in his

Industrial Coal Gasification Technologies Covering Baseline and High-Ash Coal

The ongoing discussion about reaching the "peak-oil point" (maximal delivery rate with conventional methods) emphasizes a fundamental change of the frame conditions of oil-based basic products. The alternative with the largest potential is the use of coal. Coal gasification is the production of coal gas (a mixture of mainly hydrogen and carbon monoxide) from coal adding agents like st
