DCMIX experiments take place in SODI. DCMIX is supporting research to determine diffusion coefficients of ternary fluid mixture samples, which could lead to a better understanding of mixtures processes. Some of those mixtures have a high scientific and industrial interest and their study could lead to refine petroleum reservoir models to help lead to more efficient extraction of oil resources.
