Undergraduate Research Projects

Measuring weight change at high-pressure and high-temperature conditions

We are experimenting a method that uses simple electrics and magnetics to measure mass change of a core at high-pressure and high-temperature conditions. This mass change can be caused by drainage, imbibition, saturation change, or reaction. Student: Ryan Lo.

 

Multiphase flows in microfluidic porous media analogs

We are conducting water-oil displacement experiments in microfluidic based porous media analogs. The main objective of the study is to visualize and measure phase velocity and saturations as they move in porous media, and characterize the factors (viscosity ratio, interfacial tension, wettability) that control the dynamics of displacements. Student: Martin Lozano.
