Catalog Description:

 

The development and application of phase equilibrium simulators to predict fluid

 

properties for reservoir fluids.

Evaluation (grading):

 

Grades will depend on the following:

 

7-10 homework/quiz assignments (70-100 points)

 

In-class + Take home final examination (about 175 points)

 

Final project (making your own mini simulator in Matlab or any other

 

programming platform of your choice and presenting it in class on the last

 

day of instruction;100 points).

 

The above number of assignments are advisory and subject to change. Letter

 

grade cut-offs are shown below. Final percentage will be computed on the basis

 

of total points earned by each student to assign a grade. For example, if you earn

 

60 points in the homeworks; 170 points in the final and 90 points in the project,

 

then the percentage earned is (60+170+90)/(70+175+100) = 92.75% (grade

 

assigned is A-).

 


 

A+ (100%); A (100-95%); A-(95-90%); B+ (90-85%); B (85-80%); B- (80-75%);

 

C+ (75-70%); C (70-65%); C- (65-60%)
