High-Viscosity Crude Oil. A Review

The current problem of the production and processing of heavy high-viscosity oils in Ukraine and the world has been considered. It has been established that the main reserves of heavy high-viscosity crude oils in the world are located in South and North America, in the Middle East, as well as in Ukraine in the eastern regions. An analysis of various classifications of heavy high-viscosity oils, which are used both in Ukraine and in the world, was carried out. The main extraction methods of heavy high-viscosity oils were considered, in particular, quarry, mine, and well extraction methods.

3D model and numerical algorithm for gas filtration in porous media

The article presents a three-dimensional mathematical model of the gas filtration process in porous media and a numerical algorithm for solving the initial-boundary value problem.  The developed model is described using the nonlinear differential equation in partial derivatives with the appropriate initial and boundary conditions.  The proposed mathematical apparatus makes it possible to carry out hydrodynamic calculations taking into account changes in the main factors affecting the process under consideration: permeability, porosity, and thickness of layers, gas recovery coefficient, visc

Investigation of rheological properties of graphene oxide and its nanocomposite with polyvinyl alcohol

Abstract. This paper focuses on the rheological properties of graphene oxide (GO) and its nanocomposite with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). The purpose of this paper is to compare the mechanical properties of these materials. GO is a nanomaterial that has been widely studied in engineering. The comparison of its rheological properties with those of its nanocomposite with PVA has been required. Rheology is an appropriate method for the comparative investigation of the mechancial behavior of these materials.

Composite materials based on the glass ceramics and zirconia have been synthesized, their mechanical properties studied, and feasibility of their use in the creation of bone implants has been established.

Rheological Properties of Polymer Colloid–Cellulose Thickener Systems

An approach to water emulsions modification with structure forming additives, namely cellulose esters, is proposed in the article. Influence of the film former origin on the system rheological properties at different shear-strain rates was examined. Structural and mechanical, as well as rheological properties of the studied systems were determined. The results confirm that hydroxyethylcellulose has a greater structure forming effect in comparison with carboxymethylcellulose.

Biocompatible Gel-like Forms of Drugs on the Basis of Solutions of Polysaccharide Chitosan with Alcohols

We propose an approach to the preparation of viscoelastic systems based on chitosan without crosslinking agents. It is the formation of an additional network of physical links by introducing a low molecular weight modifier – ethanol or glycerol. It turns out that gelation of chitosan in the solution is accompanied by the formation of additional meshes of physical links, nodes or aggregates of chitosan macromolecules formed in a mixed solvent of acetic acid-water-glycerol or acetic acid-waterethanol.

The effect of zeolite addition at a temperature compaction of asphalt mixes

The beginnings of warm mix asphalt are connected with the use of foamed asphalt in the ‘60s of the last century. Asphalt foaming occurs by contact with water or water steam that can be entered mechanically or under pressure. The foaming effect can be also obtained by the adding of zeolite to the asphalt mixture which causes the lower viscosity of the asphalt, better workability and adhesiveness of the mixture to the aggregate in lower temperatures. Presently, synthetic zeolites Aspha-Min and Advera are used for reducing the processing temperature.

Дослідження в’язкості золь-гель систем на основі тетраетоксисилану

The sol-gel systems of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) – solvent – water systems at gelation viscosity dynamics has been investigated by means of viscosimetry. The influence of different factors (temperature, concentration of initial substances and the sol-gel process initiator) on the gelation rate has been established. The measurement of viscosity gradient dependence allowed to determine an elastic and friction components of viscosity using optimization method in the ORIGIN 5.0. program.
