Compaction in Media with Inner Boundaries and Application to Oil-Gas Geophysics Problems
Position of compaction – poroviscous media
Compaction can take place in liquefied grounds, marshes, silts, running sands and in numerous technological processes involving liquid and paste-like mixes and colloid solutions, whenever both low- and high-viscosity phases are present. Such mixes are used in the chemical, petrochemical, biochemical and food-processing industries involving their mixing and processing. Similar processes can arise during the movement of liquid multiphase mixes through pipelines.
Gigantic tailings ponds form during the development of bituminous sands with the help of solutions containing surfactants. These ponds contain colloid solutions of hydrocarbons that are difficult to be recultivated. Sedimentation and consolidation of colloidal structures in the ponds are lasting for decades. Ecological problems restrict the potential of bitumen extraction with the help of such technologies. Colloidal structures form a coherent skeleton through which water flows.
