Project: Oilwell cementing
• Rheology of cementitious materials
• Prediction of grout/cement/concrete pumping
• Development of an integrated method for the evaluation of construction performance
Title: Analysis of deepwater cementing in oil based mud(OBM) and synthetic based mud(SBM)
The objectives of this project are to develop fundamental knowledge of mud-cement compatibility issues and to analyze fundamental characterization of mud-cement interactions related specifically to oil well cementing, to quantify risks associated with cementing in OBM/SBM.
Myoungsung has worked as a postdoctoral research associate in Prof. Scherer’s group from August 2014. He received his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering in February 2013 from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and worked in the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) from June of 2013 through July, 2014. HIs doctoral research was to develop prediction method of pumping. The title of his PhD thesis is “Prediction of concrete pumping performance based on the evaluation of lubrication layer properties”. In NIST, he was involved in the CRÈME project, the goal of which is to be able "to predict the pumpability of a grout/cement or a concrete from the rheological properties of the materials and the geometry/material of the pipe”.
