2001 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
His main research concerns Porous medium, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Capillary action and Wetting. The study incorporates disciplines such as Saturation, Relative permeability and Thermodynamics in addition to Porous medium. His work in Mineralogy covers topics such as Fluid dynamics which are related to areas like Multiphase flow.
As part of one scientific family, Kenneth Stuart Sorbie deals mainly with the area of Capillary action, narrowing it down to issues related to the Capillary pressure, and often Displacement and Data mining. His studies in Wetting integrate themes in fields like Contact angle and Pore scale. Kenneth Stuart Sorbie has researched Pore scale in several fields, including Fragmentation, Chemical engineering and Petroleum engineering.
Kenneth Stuart Sorbie mainly investigates Scale, Mechanics, Porous medium, Chemical engineering and Petroleum engineering. His Scale research includes themes of Field, Soil science, Carbonate and Process engineering. His Mechanics study incorporates themes from Displacement, Capillary action and Capillary pressure.
His study looks at the relationship between Capillary action and topics such as Wetting, which overlap with Contact angle, Saturation and Geotechnical engineering. The Porous medium study combines topics in areas such as Rheology, Thermodynamics, Relative permeability, Network model and Mineralogy. His work deals with themes such as Phosphonate, Precipitation, Adsorption and Polymer, which intersect with Chemical engineering.
His primary scientific interests are in Scale, Carbonate, Chemical engineering, Precipitation and Mechanics. His research in Scale intersects with topics in Metallurgy, Carbonate rock and Petroleum engineering. His Carbonate research also works with subjects such as
His Chemical engineering research incorporates elements of Chromatography, Molar mass distribution, Polymer and Scaling. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Viscous fingering, Porous medium, Relative permeability and Surface tension. His studies deal with areas such as Wetting, Rheology and Capillary action as well as Porous medium.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Scale, Precipitation, Chemical engineering, Wetting and Inorganic chemistry. His Scale study combines topics in areas such as Geochemistry, Metallurgy, Carbonate and Phosphate. While the research belongs to areas of Precipitation, Kenneth Stuart Sorbie spends his time largely on the problem of Solubility, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Soil science.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Chromatography and Polymer flooding in addition to Chemical engineering. Kenneth Stuart Sorbie has researched Wetting in several fields, including Multiphase flow, Microporous material, Porous medium, Residual oil and Capillary action. He focuses mostly in the field of Porous medium, narrowing it down to matters related to Mechanics and, in some cases, Capillary number.
