..., 1995 ). It seems that most of the named parameters are dependent on other factors. According to Clark (2002) , primary effective parameters in a slurry flow-induced erosion include particle density, size, shape, hardness, impact angle and velocity, concentration, carrier fluid density and viscosity...

... of the liner. We set up a large-scale Sand Retention Testing (SRT) facility that accommodates a multi-slot liner coupon at the base of a sand-pack with representative grain shape and particle size distribution (PSD) of typical oil sands. Brine is injected at different flow rates and pressure differences...

This study presents some results of a developed sand prediction model that has been used in Venezuela to understand sand transport characteristics in heavy oil and to estimate suspension and deposit critical velocities. In addition, results are presented of a sensitivity analysis of particle...

... as an additive to boost bitumen recovery efficiency. Use of NaOH as an extraction process additive increases process water salinity, specifically Na + concentration, promotes dispersion of silt and clay size particles which results in greater production of toxic mature fine tailings. Increase in process...

.... In this study, Multiple Objective Particle Swarm Optimizer (MO-PSO) is applied to conduct numerical tuning on a sub-model of a real field SAGD case study. MO-PSO tries to reduce the simulation run time, and the material balance error simultaneously. The results obtained by MO-PSO are compared...
