Abstract

Flow behavior in terms of shear stress and viscosity versus shear rate is investigated for aqueous solutions of Alcoflood polymer materials. Rheostress RS100 is employed for operating, measuring, and analyzing this experimental investigation. Polymer concentration in the range of 100-10,000 ppm was covered. Fitting analysis is carried out for all the examined polymer solutions. Casson and Ostwald-de-Waele correlations can be employed for predicting flow behavior, depending upon polymer type.
