Soret and Diffusion Coefficients in crude oils Under Microgravity (SoDiUM)

Research project PX/8/LP/08 (Research action PX)


Persons :

  • Dr.  VAN VAERENBERGH Stefan - Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)
    Coordinator of the project
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/1/2005-31/12/2007

Description :

The experiment aims to better understand diffusion and thermodiffusion (Soret effect) in multi-component systems with in mind applications to the improvement of crude oil recovery (in oil field, a large geo-thermal gradient exists).

Satellite(s) or flight opportunity(ies):

SODI on ISS


Field of research:

Physical Science: Fluid pPhysics
