    Abstract: Over the last few decades, there has been a dispute regarding the ability of colloidal dispersion gels (CDG) to improve sweep efficiency more than polymer flooding. In this study, a numerical model was built using the CMG-STARS simulator to investigate the behavior of injecting 0.1 PV of CDG slug into one quarter of inverted nine-spot pattern. This... Show More

    Abstract: This paper investigates asphaltic concrete core embankment dam in relative to the clay core embankment dam so that it is vital from the perspective of safety and controlling seepage. Plaxis 8.5, finite element based software was employed for analysis of the dam and Geostudio 2012 for seepage analysis. Relatively the result of analysis shows that go... Show More
