Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer in Wellbores Second Edition

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


Addressing both steady and unsteady-state fluid flow and related heat-transfer problems, the Second Edition of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer in Wellbores strikes the perfect balance between theory and practice to aid understanding. Three new chapters on application of theory have been added and include probing pressure traverse in various wellbore multiphase fluid-flow situations, estimating flow rates from temperature data, translating off-bottom transient-pressure data to that at the datum depth, and a detailed discussion around newly discovered wellbore safety and integrity issues. Fundamental aspects of drilling, fluid circulation, and production operations form the foundation of this update of the 2002 original publication.

About the Author

A. Rashid Hasan is a professor of petroleum engineering at Texas A&M University (TAMU). Before joining TAMU, Hasan headed the Chemical Engineering Departments at the University of Minnesota, Duluth (UMD) and the University of North Dakota (UND), Grand Forks, and directed UND s doctoral program in Energy Engineering. He has also worked with NASA Glenn on various aspects of multiphase flow and thermohydraulic transients. Hasan is an expert in the areas of production engineering, focusing on modeling complex transport processes in various elements of petroleum production systems. He is one of the pioneers in modeling steady and transient transport of heat and momentum in wellbores. Hasan holds a PhD degree (1979) from University of Waterloo, Canada. C.
