STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY: Sign-up Deadline is Dec. 1st
We are accepting applications for the society’s two academic awards through the Presidential Awards Program: The E. Richard Booser Scholarship and The E. Elmer Klaus Fellowship, which are awarded annually to encourage undergraduate and graduate students to pursue an advanced degree or a career in tribology or lubrication engineering by subsidizing a research project related to the field.

The Booser Scholarship is available for undergraduate students to pursue graduate degrees or a career in tribology by providing the opportunity for them to participate in tribology research. To be eligible, the student must be enrolled in an engineering or science curriculum.

The Klaus Fellowship is available for graduate students to pursue graduate degrees or a career in tribology by providing the opportunity for them to participate in tribology research. To be eligible, the student must be enrolled in a graduate engineering or science curriculum and should have completed no more than two years beyond their bachelor’s degree at the time the research is started.

For more information and to download applications, click here. Applications are due Monday, Dec. 1


Experiments Needed for 3rd Annual Tribology STEM Camp @STLE2015
Help us teach America about tribology and lubrication engineering. Join STLE for the 3rd Annual Tribology STEM Camp which will be held as part of the 2015 Annual Meeting & Exhibition at the Omni Hotel in Dallas, Texas, May 17-21.

STLE is looking for hands-on experiments lasting about 15-20 minutes that will be safe for high school students to perform. In addition, we’re asking for donated supplies and volunteers to help conduct the experiments, too. Any ideas and write-ups of various tribology or lubrication-related experiments would be greatly appreciated.

The goal is to expose high school students, who have interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), about potential careers in the fields of tribology research and lubrication engineering.

If you can help, please contact Karl Phipps, kphipps@stle.org or Bruce Murgueitio, bmurgueitio@stle.org at STLE Headquarters for more information about the STEM program or provide your suggestions for experiments by filling out the attached form and submit by Jan. 7, 2015.

CRC Book Deal – Petroleum Reservoir Rock and Fluid Properties
Petroleum Reservoir Rock and Fluid Properties, 2nd Ed.
Abhijit Y. Dandekar
Listed Price: $119.95
Discounted Price: $95.96
Cat. #: K13547 ISBN: 9781439876367

Summary
A strong foundation in reservoir rock and fluid properties is the backbone of almost all the activities in the petroleum industry. Suitable for undergraduate students in petroleum engineering, Petroleum Reservoir Rock and Fluid Properties, Second Edition offers a well-balanced, in-depth treatment of the fundamental concepts and practical aspects that encompass this vast discipline.

New to the Second Edition
• Introductions to Stone II three-phase relative permeability model and unconventional oil and gas resources
• Discussions on low salinity water injection, saturated reservoirs and production trends of five reservoir fluids, impact of mud filtrate invasion and heavy organics on samples, and flow assurance problems due to solid components of petroleum
• Better plots for determining oil and water Corey exponents from relative permeability data
• Inclusion of Rachford-Rice flash function, Plateau equation, and skin effect
• Improved introduction to reservoir rock and fluid properties
• Practice problems covering porosity, combined matrix-channel and matrix-fracture permeability, radial flow equations, drilling muds on fluid saturation, wettability concepts, three-phase oil relative permeability, petroleum reservoir fluids, various phase behavior concepts, phase behavior of five reservoir fluids, and recombined fluid composition
• Detailed solved examples on absolute permeability, live reservoir fluid composition, true boiling point extended plus fractions properties, viscosity based on compositional data, and gas-liquid surface tension

Accessible to anyone with an engineering background, the text reveals the importance of understanding rock and fluid properties in petroleum engineering. Key literature references, mathematical expressions, and laboratory measurement techniques illustrate the correlations and influence between the various properties. Explaining how to acquire accurate and reliable data, the author describes coring and fluid sampling methods, issues related to handling samples for core analyses, and PVT studies. He also highlights core and phase behavior analysis using laboratory tests and calculations to elucidate a wide range of properties.
