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).

2013 7th IEEE International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies (DEST) - Complex Environment Engineering

The essence of digital ecosystems is the adoption of ecological system concepts, and creating value by making connections through collective intelligence and promoting collaboration instead of unbridled competition and ICT-based catalyst effects in a number of domains, to produce networked enriched communities and solutions. IEEE DEST 2013 with its special theme of - Complex Environment Engineering recognizes the key role of business process data modeling, representation and privacy-aware analysis for Digital Ecosystems, and vice versa. Further, the Innovation Adoption Forum underpins the importance of public-private partnership as the key for delivering sustainable solutions for our Complex Living and Business Environment – and thus our Digital Ecosystem Habitat. Our Keynotes, Panels and Sessions will tackle the multifaceted challenges and solutions from various stakeholders’ perspectives.

  • 2012 6th IEEE International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies (DEST) - Complex Environment Engineering

    Traditional ICT-support has often increased complexity, thus making the challenges even more severe. The Digital Ecosystem perspective aims to address the twofold challenge of Complex Environment Engineering and Digital Ecosystem Technology mapping. The complexity of both the challenges and the technological solutions has to be acknowledged.

General Properties of Mixtures of Paraffinic Insulating Oil with Alkylbenzenes

S. Yasufuku; Y. Ishioka; S. Kobayashi IEEE Transactions on Electrical Insulation, 1980

Mixtures of a paraffinic-base electrical insulating oil for oil-filled transformer use with a branchedchain type alkylbenzene with high viscosity, a branchedchain type dodecylbenzene and a straight-chain type dodecylbenzene were evaluated for improving the characteristics of a paraffinic mineral oil for transformer use. It has been demonstrated that blending the alkylbenzenes in the paraffinic oil brings about some improvements in its ...

H. A. Ragheb; E. Hassan IEEE/ACES International Conference on Wireless Communications and Applied Computational Electromagnetics, 2005., 2005

This paper describes the scattered field from two dielectric coated conducting strips. The electric and magnetic fields are described here as solutions of Helmholtz wave equation of unknown coefficient in each region due to a plane wave incidence. The unknown coefficient can be obtained by enforcing the boundary conditions. The application of the boundary condition requires the use of the ...


Exploitation of antenna directivity for compressed indoor radar imaging with ghost suppression

Ali Hussain Muqaibel IET Radar, Sonar & Navigation, 2016

The impulse-responses of ultra-wideband antennas vary with the angles of transmission and arrival. In urban radar applications, unless exploited, this directivity degrades the localisation accuracy and defocusses the imaged targets. Moreover, multipath reflections caused by surrounding walls result in ghosts that appear in the indoor radar images. Compressive sensing (CS) is needed to attain the high image resolution with reduced ...

It is obvious that the transportation sector consumes a large portion of the global oil and emits a vast amount of greenhouse gases (GHG). Furthermore, sets of serious issues, such as environmental pollution, global warming, and petroleum shortage have been brought to the attention of governments worldwide. For the latest two decades, with the intention of meeting the rigorous governmental ...

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.

    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
