Hydrate formation and blockage in pipelines are serious problems in the oil-gas production and transportation. The current research is limited to the prediction of pipeline hydrate formation. However, the small hydrate generation often does not form obvious pipeline flow-barriers. Therefore, compared with hydrate formation, hydrate growth rate and deposition rate is equally important for the emergence of flow barriers. Based on the hydrate formation-growth-deposition mechanism and combi… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
