Foam proppant transport Conference Paper uri icon


  • The rheology of foams has been the subject of recent work in which the principle of volume equalization has proven effective to describe the flow behavior. This model is combined with the constant-internal-phase/constant-viscosity assumption to describe the transport of solid particles. Laminar and turbulent friction pressures, the transition criterion and the settling velocity are given in a unified framework.
