Some useful upper bounds for the selection of optimal profiles

  title={Some useful upper bounds for the selection of optimal profiles},
  author={Prabir Daripa},
In enhanced oil recovery by chemical flooding within tertiary oil recovery, it is often necessary to choose optimal viscous profiles of the injected displacing fluids that reduce growth rates of hydrodynamic instabilities the most thereby substantially reducing the well-known fingering problem and improving oil recovery. Within the three-layer Hele–Shaw model, we show in this paper that selection of the optimal monotonic viscous profile of the middle-layer fluid based on well known theoretical… CONTINUE READING
