Principles of Petroleum Reservoir Engineering: Volume 1, 1st by Professor Gian Luigi Chierici (auth.)

By Professor Gian Luigi Chierici (auth.)

Six years in the past, on the finish of my expert occupation within the oil undefined, I left my administration place inside of Agip S.p.A., a huge multinational oil corporation whose headquarters are in Italy, to take in the chair in reservoir engineering on the college of Bologna, Italy. There, i made a decision to arrange what was once at first meant to be a collection of lecture notes for the scholars attending the path. besides the fact that, whereas getting ready those notes, I turned so absorbed within the material that I quickly came upon myself making a big quantity of textual content that may not just function a college path fabric, but in addition as a reference for wider expert purposes. because of the curiosity proven through the then president of Agip, Ing. Giuseppe Muscarella, this did certainly culminate within the book of the 1st Italian variation of this booklet in 1989. the interpretation into English and booklet of those volumes owes a lot to the encouragement of the present president of Agip, Ing. Guglielmo Moscato. My thankful thank you are because of either gents. And now - the English model, translated from the second one Italian variation, and containing a couple of revisions and lots more and plenty extra fabric. in addition to supplying a superb theoretical foundation for many of the subject matters, this paintings attracts greatly on my 36 years of globally event within the improvement and exploitation of oil and fuel fields.

Röntgen-Pulverdiffraktometrie: Rechnergestützte Auswertung, Phasenanalyse und Strukturbestimmung (German Edition)

Die Beugung von Röntgenstrahlen wird heute in vielen Labors zur schnellen, sicheren und zerstörungsfreien Identifikation von Festkörperproben benutzt. Der Einsatz von Kleinrechnern (PCs) und von schnelleren Detektoren hat in der Röntgenpulverdiffraktometrie zu einer Renaissance sowohl in der Phasenanalyse von Gemischen als auch in der Strukturverfeinerung aus Pulverdaten geführt.

How huge is the common version in focus of many of the parts in several media? How do the oft-cited "World typical concentrations" in several media examine with genuine analytical information? How low a detection restrict do i must reach if i would like to examine for a component in soils, sediments, water or vegetation?

Isotopic Landscapes in Bioarchaeology

This paintings takes a severe examine the present proposal of isotopic landscapes ("isoscapes") in bioarchaeology and its software in destiny examine. It particularly addresses the study strength of cremated reveals, a slightly missed bioarchaeological substrate, ensuing basically from the inherent osteological demanding situations and complicated mineralogy linked to it.
