Solution Manual for Properties of Petroleum Fluids, 3rd Edition by William D. McCain Jr.
Properties of Petroleum Fluids is a comprehensive and authoritative book that covers the physical and chemical properties of various types of petroleum fluids, such as crude oils, natural gases, gas condensates, and volatile oils. The book also explains the methods and techniques for measuring and predicting these properties, as well as their applications in reservoir engineering, production engineering, and processing engineering.
The third edition of this book has been updated and expanded with new chapters on petroleum gas condensates and volatile oils, as well as an extended discussion on oilfield waters. The book also provides a simplified explanation of phase behavior and an expanded review of the components of petroleum and the methods of determining its composition. The book is written in a clear and concise style, with numerous examples, problems, tables, figures, and references.
The solution manual for this book contains detailed solutions to all the end-of-chapter problems in the book. The solutions are organized by chapter and problem number, and show the steps and calculations involved in solving each problem. The solution manual is an invaluable resource for students and instructors who use this book as a textbook or a reference for petroleum engineering courses or professional practice.
The solution manual for Properties of Petroleum Fluids, 3rd Edition by William D. McCain Jr. can be obtained from the publisher's website or from online retailers. The ISBN for the solution manual is 978-1-59370-399-5. The solution manual is checked and verified by the author and the publisher for accuracy and completeness.
Properties of Petroleum Fluids, 3rd Edition by William D. McCain Jr. is divided into four parts. Part I introduces the basic concepts and definitions of petroleum fluids and their properties, such as density, viscosity, compressibility, vapor pressure, and surface tension. Part II covers the phase behavior of petroleum fluids, such as phase diagrams, phase envelopes, equilibrium ratios, flash calculations, and retrograde condensation. Part III discusses the properties of specific types of petroleum fluids, such as black oils, volatile oils, gas condensates, natural gases, and oilfield waters. Part IV presents the methods and techniques for measuring and correlating the properties of petroleum fluids, such as sampling, laboratory analysis, empirical correlations, and equation of state models.
The book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students who are studying petroleum engineering or related disciplines. It is also useful for practicing engineers who are involved in the exploration, development, production, or processing of petroleum fluids. The book provides a solid foundation and a comprehensive overview of the properties of petroleum fluids and their importance in petroleum engineering.
