LaMEP is pleased to extend an invitation to the scientific community to attend to the 4th Workshop on Advances in CFD, LB and MD Modeling of Capillary Two-Phase Flows and Experimental Validation, to be held on May, 16th – 19th in Rio de Janeiro. This workshop precedes the renowned International Conference on Multiphase Flow – ICMF 2019 which is now going to its 10th edition. The workshop is organised by international researchers…
LaMEP, in partnership with the Technology Park Foundation of Paraíba (PaqTcPB) and the Petrobras Research Center (CENPES) will be receiving applications for a 1-year postdoctoral fellowship position at LaMEP from March 25th to April 30th, 2019. See requirements and details here.
Prof. Aparecido de Souza, in cooperation with Pure and Applied Mathematics Institute (IMPA), has published new research in Journal of Hyperbolic Differential Equations. His article, intitled Three-phase fluid displacements in a porous media, presents the Riemann solution for the three-phase transport flow problem in a water-gas-oil configuration as commonly found in petroleum reservoirs. Check this out: http://dx.doi.org/10.1142/S0219891618500236.
On last December 7th, Rafael Magalhães, researcher at LaMEP and current doctoral student at Postgraduate Program in Mechanical Engineering/UFPB, was qualified for his doctoral thesis. With a background in Computer Science, Rafael began to developing codes for deep learning training in the past, but now he conciliates his knowledge to reservoir modelling. Rafael’s work plan, entitled Deep Learning-Based Algorithms as…
Waldir Roque, retired professor of DCC/UFPB and active collaborator at LaMEP has co-authored the paper X-ray microtomography analysis of representative elementary volume (REV) of soil morphological and geometrical properties, published in Soil & Tillage Research. The paper is intended to study macroporous characteristics of Ferralsol Rhodic soils.
In collaboration with Prof. Jesus da Mota, researcher at Federal University of Goiás, Prof. Aparecido de Souza had the paper Multiple Traveling Waves for Dry Forward Combustion Through a Porous Medium published at the SIAM’s Journal of Applied Mathematics da SIAM. The paper studies the problem of the combustion front propagated over porous media, a relevant issue for improving thermal oil recovery processes.
Profs. Gustavo Oliveira and Moises Dantas are co-authors of a newly published paper for publication at Petroleum Science and Technology, from Taylor & Francis. The paper A Study on continuous and intermittent THAI processes in Brazil’s Northeastern Region was intended to compare different approaches for enhanced heavy-oil recovery using the Toe-to-Heel Air Injection – THAITM technique.
