The prevention of bit balling by electro-osmosis by Bunker Roy( )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The majority of all oilwell footage drilled is in shales and other clay bearing rocks. The mechanical strength of these formations usually is not an issue as regards their fast penetration by the drill bit. The difficulties associated with these formations arise due to the chemically reactive nature of such formations, causing the cuttings to stick to the bit. This causes a decrease in the rate of penetration of the drill bit, and also has a detrimental effect on the state of the wellbore. Previous approaches to prevent shale cuttings from sticking to the bit consisted of suitably modifying the mud chemistry, by improving the drilling hydraulics, or by suitably designing the bit profile
Disjunctive visions : a reading of Georg Simmel's "The Metropolis and Mental Life" by Bunker Roy( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis aims to study the specific theme of insecurity and its spatial manifestation as walls, fences and related physical objects and electronic accessories of division that create and enhance spatial divisions, as well as restrict access to homes, buildings, and installations in the twentieth century metropolis. The ideas of insecurity and its spatial manifestations investigated here will be grounded in Georg Simmel's classic essay "The Metropolis and Mental Life", first published in 1903. To that end, the primary exploration of the thesis revolves around the semiotic and psychological experiences of the individual that arises from his interaction with the visual aspects of elements of spatial division such as gates, fences, surveillance mechanisms and walls. How does the shared cognitive outlook of fear that arises from such experiences influence the conceptualization of public space in the city? How does the conceptualization of the contemporary city as an idea rooted in the production and consumption of space inform urban spatial expression? If applicable, what are the limitations of such analogies as reflected in the writings under investigations. If not applicable, what are the possible common denominators of the ideas of insecurity in the writings. Thus, the primary argument of this essay is: following a careful investigation of Simmel's "The Metropolis and Mental Life", one might discover that urbanization and its spatial manifestation in the spaces of division- engenders a particular kind of struggle that is focused on meeting the needs of everyday existence- creates a space of interaction that encourages individual insecurity, loss and alienation within the contemporary metropolis
