Shear Viscosity of Poly (acrylamide/acrylic acid) Solutions
MetadataShow full item record
Acrylamide (AAm)/Acrylic acid (AAc) copolymers are being used in a wide spectrum of applications, from which enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is the target application in this research study. The shear viscosity of the copolymer solution is extremely important in determining the performance properties of AAm/AAc copolymers. A series of copolymers with selected properties were prepared to study the effect of polymer concentration, copolymer composition, and salinity on the shear viscosity of the copolymer solutions. The results revealed the considerable effect of solution concentration and salinity on shear viscosity. Moreover, the behavior of the copolymer composition showed a maximum with respect to shear viscosity.
