    The Late Jurassic Najmah Formation of Northeast Kuwait consists of a fractured tight carbonate reservoir and organic-rich kerogen layer. The average reservoir unit thickness is about 50 ft at a depth of 14000 ft. It has ...
  • On Pore-Scale Imaging and Elasticity of Unconsolidated Sediments 

    Contributor:Schindler, Mandy;
    Date Submitted:2018
    Understanding the elastic properties of unconsolidated granular media is crucial for interpreting seismic and sonic log data in soils and unconsolidated petroleum reservoirs. Rock and soil deformations are often estimated ...
  • Tempering response of mixed martensitic/bainitic microstructures in quench and tempered plate steels 

    Contributor:Vieira, Igor Eduardo Silva;
    Date Submitted:2018
    High strength heavy gauge plate steels develop different cooling rates throughout the thickness during quenching. Several grades do not fully harden to martensite, resulting in mixed microstructures of martensite and ...
  • Low temperature aqueous solubility of fluorite at temperatures of 5, 25, and 50°C and ionic strengths up to 0.72M 

    Contributor:Henry, Richard L.;
    Date Submitted:2018
    Historical fluorite solubility research found that fluorite solubilities varied over three orders-of-magnitude and appear to be inconsistent with several recently determined fluorite solubilities. This research involved ...
  • Hydrometallurgical treatment of e-scrap 

    Contributor:Cui, Hao;
    Date Submitted:2018
    Due to the relatively short life-span of electronic products and rapid revolution of information technology, the production of electronics has increased rapidly in the last two decades. The growth of electronics significantly ...
  • Beneficiation and hydrometallurgical treatment of Norra Kärr eudialyte mineral 

    Contributor:Vaccarezza, Victoria;
    Date Submitted:2018
    Due to the demand for rare earth elements for everyday technology and applications, there has been much research initiated into the extraction and recovery of rare earth elements. An otherwise unknown mineral, eudialyte, ...
  • Computational framework for studying seismicity induced by rock engineering activities 

    Contributor:Khademian, Zoheir;
    Date Submitted:2018
    Rock Engineering Activities (REA), including tunneling, shaft-boring, mining, deep wastewater disposal, and geothermal energy extraction may result in unstable compressive failure of rock and unstable shear slip on ...
  • Essays in energy and environmental economics 

    Contributor:Lee, Sul-Ki;
    Date Submitted:2018
    The chapters in this dissertation focus on environmental economics but vary in their contributions to current environmental economics literature. The second chapter shows that coal stockpiles accumulated through contractual ...
  • Analysis of military protective structures : a framework for quantifying cost-benefit of existing and new protective systems 

    Contributor:Crofoot, Henry J.;
    Date Submitted:2018
    The United States military is constantly evolving into an organization equipped by the latest technology and seeking the greatest protection per cost ratio for its members in harm’s way. While new protection methods are ...
  • Integrated reservoir characterization in Delhi field, Louisiana : a continuous CO₂ injection EOR project 

    Contributor:Chen, Tingting;
    Date Submitted:2018
    In assessing the efficiency of any CO2 enhanced oil recovery projects, it is essential to track the flow path of injected CO2. Time-lapse seismic is an effective tool for monitoring CO2 movement and deciphering flow paths ...
