Welcome to ROS
The ROS Theses Repository contains full-text copies of all Heriot-Watt University PhD theses awarded from 2009 onwards.
It is mandatory for any student who completes a doctoral thesis to submit a digital copy for inclusion in ROS. In addition, the metadata-only records of older theses (previously held in the University Library catalogue) are included in ROS, with full text digital copies being sought on a voluntary basis. If you have a digital copy of your thesis and you wish to store it in ROS, please contact us.

(Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2018-08)In naturally fractured reservoirs (NFR), fractures often constitute the main heterogeneities, yet the pressure responses observed in the wells may not show the conventional well-test signatures for NFR. In order to better ...
Inhibition and dissociation of gas hydrates using glycols/alcohols and biodegradable kinetic hydrate inhibitors (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2018-07)Gas hydrates are a major flow assurance issue that can cause serious operational and safety problems in the oil and gas industry. In the past decade, low dosage hydrate inhibitors (LDHIs) – including kinetic hydrate ...
