2000 - Member of the National Academy of Engineering For contributions to understanding of complex multicomponent flows in porous media and its applications to the design of enhanced oil recovery processes; and for superb academic leadership.
His main research concerns Mechanics, Porous medium, Carbon sequestration, Fossil fuel and Carbon dioxide. The Mechanics study combines topics in areas such as Saturation, Wetting, Gravity and Capillary action. His study explores the link between Porous medium and topics such as Multiphase flow that cross with problems in Relative permeability and Scaling.
The various areas that Franklin M. Orr examines in his Fossil fuel study include Basic sediment and water, Carbon dioxide flooding, Enhanced oil recovery and Steam injection. His research in Carbon dioxide flooding tackles topics such as Barrel of oil equivalent which are related to areas like Petroleum engineering. His studies in Carbon dioxide integrate themes in fields like Seawater and Negative carbon dioxide emission.
Franklin M. Orr mainly investigates Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Petroleum engineering, Miscibility and Displacement. Franklin M. Orr interconnects Decane, Phase and Method of characteristics in the investigation of issues within Thermodynamics. He combines subjects such as Gravity, Finite difference, Capillary action and Porous medium with his study of Mechanics.
The concepts of his Porous medium study are interwoven with issues in Multiphase flow, Two-phase flow and Computer simulation. His Petroleum engineering research includes themes of Saturation, Fossil fuel, Waste management and Petroleum. His work in Displacement tackles topics such as Mineralogy which are related to areas like Flow, Hydrate, Clathrate hydrate, Seawater and Carbon dioxide.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Miscibility, Phase and Surface tension. His Thermodynamics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Flow and Method of characteristics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gravity current, Gravity and Porous medium in addition to Mechanics.
His Gravity research incorporates elements of Capillary action and Analytical chemistry. His Phase study incorporates themes from Petroleum reservoir, Conservation law and Coalbed methane. His Multiphase flow study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Leak and Water saturation.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Porous medium, Trapping and Surface tension. His study in Mechanics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gravity, Plume and Capillary action. His Plume study deals with Leak intersecting with Geotechnical engineering.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Instability and Linear stability. His Porous medium research incorporates themes from Saturation and Phase. His work on Parachor as part of general Surface tension research is frequently linked to Miscibility, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.
