Petroleum

View this topic in
Petroleum or crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights and other liquid organic compounds, that are found in geologic formations beneath the Earth's surface. Petroleum is recovered mostly through oil drilling. This latter stage comes after the studies of structural geology (at the reservoir scale), sedimentary basin analysis, reservoir characterization (mainly in terms of porosity and permeable structures).

  • Geometric Programming for Design and Cost Optimization

    Geometric programming is used for design and cost optimization and the development of generalized design relationships and cost rations for specific problems. The early pioneers of the process, Zener, Duffin, Peterson, Beightler, and Wilde, played important roles in the development of geometric programming. The theory of geometric programming is presented and 10 examples are presented and solved in detail. The examples illustrate some of the difficulties encountered in typical problems and techniques for overcoming these difficulties. The primal-dual relationships are used to illustrate how to determine the primal variables from the dual solution. These primal-dual relationships can be used to determine additional dual equations when the degrees of difficulty are positive. The goal of this work is to have readers develop more case studies to further the application of this exciting mathematical tool.

  • Electric and Plug¿¿¿In Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    Shortage of petroleum is considered as one of the most critical worldwide issues today. At the same time, as of today, car owners worldwide, in general, spend more money at the gas station than they have done ever before. The most practical solution to the transportation industry oil¿¿¿consumption crisis problems lies in commercially viable electric and plug¿¿¿in hybrid electric vehicles (EVs and PHEVs). EVs and PHEVs present a significant opportunity to reduce greenhouse gases and dependence on oil. Major automotive companies have already developed exciting new EVs. This chapter presents the structure and basic design aspects of EVs and PHEVs. Future trends in EV manufacturing are also presented. Integration of EVs with green, renewable energy sources is presented, along with an introduction to the design of such systems. Various charging scenarios for EV batteries is presented, when charging at home, at work, or in between routes. Future advanced battery charging infrastructures, such as from combined PV and grid sources are also presented.

The analytic rather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT.

    This book provides a long-overdue vision for a new automobile era. The cars we drive today follow the same underlying design principles as the Model Ts of a hundred years ago and the tail-finned sedans of fifty years ago. In the twenty-first century, cars are still made for twentieth-century purposes. They're well suited for conveying multiple passengers over long distances at high speeds, but inefficient for providing personal mobility within cities-- where most of the world's people now live. In this pathbreaking book, William Mitchell and two industry experts reimagine the automobile, describing vehicles of the near future that are green, smart, connected, and fun to drive. They roll out four big ideas that will make this both feasible and timely. First, we must transform the DNA of the automobile, basing it on electric-drive and wireless communication rather than on petroleum, the internal combustion engine, and stand-alone operation. This allows vehicles to become lighter, cleaner, and "smart" enough to avoid crashes and traffic jams. Second, automobiles will be linked by a Mobility Internet that allows them to collect and share data on traffic conditions, intelligently coordinates their movements, and keeps drivers connected to their social networks. Third, automobiles must be recharged through a convenient, cost-effective infrastructure that is integrated with smart electric grids and makes increasing use of renewable energy sources. Finally, dynamically priced markets for electricity, road space, parking space, and shared-use vehicles must be introduced to provide optimum management of urban mobility and energy systems. The fundamental reinvention of the automobile won't be easy, but it is an urgent necessity--to make urban mobility more convenient an d sustainable, to make cities more livable, and to help bring the automobile industry out of crisis.Four Big Ideas That Could Transform the Automobileï¿¿ï¿¿ Base the underlying design principles on electric-drive and wireless communications rather than the internal combustion engine and stand- alone operationï¿¿ï¿¿ Develop the Mobility Internet for sharing traffic and travel dataï¿¿ï¿¿ Integrate electric-drive vehicles with smart electric grids that use clean, renewable energy sourcesï¿¿ï¿¿ Establish dynamically priced markets for electricity, road space, parking space, and shared-use vehicles

    In the nineteenth century, horse transportation consumed vast amounts of land for hay production, and the intense traffic and ankle-deep manure created miserable living conditions in urban centers. The introduction of the horseless carriage solved many of these problems but has created others. Today another revolution in transportation seems overdue. Transportation consumes two-thirds of the world's petroleum and has become the largest contributor to global environmental change. Most of this increase in scale can be attributed to the strong desire for personal mobility that comes with economic growth. In Transportation in a Climate-Constrained World, the authors present the first integrated assessment of the factors affecting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from passenger transportation. They examine such topics as past and future travel demand; the influence of personal and business choices on passenger travel's climate impact; technologies and alternative fuels that may become available to mitigate GHG emissions from passenger transport; and policies that would promote a more sustainable transportation system. And most important, taking into account all of these options are taken together, they consider how to achieve a sustainable transportation system in the next thirty to fifty years.

  • Developing a Standard for Electrical Trace Heating

    Electric trace heating is a system that uses electrical heating devices to maintain a desired temperature in pipes and vessels. It is used throughout process industry, but also has applications in other industries. Trace heating consists of an electrical heating element that is run along the length of a pipe. Trace heating materials and systems are used to protect pipes from freezing and also to maintain a desired temperature in pipes that transport materials. Electric trace heating began as a commercial application in the 1930s, with mostly make-shift equipment being used to heat pipes and vessels. In most process industries today, from petroleum and chemical to food processing, and pharmaceuticals and power generation, electrical trace heating technologies help solve the problem of keeping materials flowing at an optimal viscosity regardless of ambient temperatures. The process of developing one worldwide standard for industrial trace heating has taken more than 30 years.

  • Geometric Programming for Design and Cost Optimization:With Illustrative Case Study Problems and Solutions

    Geometric programming is used for design and cost optimization, the development of generalized design relationships, cost ratios for specific problems, and profit maximization. The early pioneers of the process - Zener, Duffin, Peterson, Beightler, Wilde, and Phillips -- played important roles in the development of geometric programming. There are three major areas: 1) Introduction, History, and Theoretical Fundamentals, 2) Applications with Zero Degrees of Difficulty, and 3) Applications with Positive Degrees of Difficulty. The primal-dual relationships are used to illustrate how to determine the primal variables from the dual solution and how to determine additional dual equations when the degrees of difficulty are positive. A new technique for determining additional equations for the dual, Dimensional Analysis, is demonstrated. The various solution techniques of the constrained derivative approach, the condensation of terms, and dimensional analysis are illustrated with example pro lems. The goal of this work is to have readers develop more case studies to further the application of this exciting tool.
