Abstract

Identifying liquids in chemical technologies and in the oil industry is an actual problem. Such identifications can be made using individual characteristics of thermocapillary flows and deformations in the horizontal layers of the investigated liquids. Numerical algorithms and calculating code have been developed for solving inverse problems for identifying properties of liquid. As additional information for inverse problem a function of thermocapillary response is used. The algorithm for solving inverse problem is based on solving problem of minimizing the residual function. The minimum is obtained numerically by the Newton's method. Numerical calculations have been made for silicone oil. Thermocapillary responses have been calculated for different values of the coefficients. The developed algorithms have been tested on synthetic data, which have been obtained from the solution of direct problems. The developed algorithms have shown a good convergence and efficiency.
