According to WoS definition, Highly cited paper in the filed means; Highly Cited Papers are papers that perform in the top 1% based on the number of citations received when compared to other papers published in the same field in the same year. Click on the Highly Cited Paper icon for more details about an item. Hot paper in the field means; A paper is selected as a Hot Paper if it meets a citation-frequency threshold determined for its field and bimonthly group. Citation-frequency distributions are compiled for each field and cohort. Thresholds are set by finding the closest citation count that would select the top fraction of papers in each field and period.

Both published papers [1] [2] are open access. Open access costs a high article proccessing fee but it is available free for the public and brings high number of citations.

1. Proposing a gamma radiation based intelligent system for simultaneous analyzing and detecting type and amount of petroleum by-products
By: Roshani, MohammadmehdiPhan, GiangFaraj, Rezhna Hassan; et al.
NUCLEAR ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY   Volume: ‏ 53   Issue: ‏ 4   Pages: ‏ 1277-1283   Published: ‏ APR 2021

Abstract

It is important for operators of poly-pipelines in petroleum industry to continuously monitor characteristics of transferred fluid such as its type and amount. To achieve this aim, in this study a dual energy gamma attenuation technique in combination with artificial neural network (ANN) is proposed to simultaneously determine type and amount of four different petroleum by-products. The detection system is composed of a dual energy gamma source, including americium-241 and barium-133 radioisotopes, and one 2.54 cm x 2.54 cm sodium iodide detector for recording the transmitted photons. Two signals recorded in transmission detector, namely the counts under photo peak of Americium-241 with energy of 59.5 keV and the counts under photo peak of Barium-133 with energy of 356 keV, were applied to the ANN as the two inputs and volume percentages of petroleum by-products were assigned as the outputs.

2. Evaluation of flow pattern recognition and void fraction measurement in two phase flow independent of oil pipeline's scale layer thickness
By: Roshani, MohammadmehdiPhan, Giang T. T.Ali, Peshawa Jammal Muhammad; et al.
ALEXANDRIA ENGINEERING JOURNAL   Volume: ‏ 60   Issue: ‏ 1   Pages: ‏ 1955-1966   Published: ‏ FEB 2021

Abstract
The main objective of the present research is to combine the effect of scale thickness on the flow pattern and characteristics of two-phase flow that is used in oil industry. In this regard, an intelligent nondestructive technique based on combination of gamma radiation attenuation and artificial intelligence is proposed to determine the type of flow pattern and gas volume percentage in two phase flow independent of petroleum pipeline's scale layer thickness. The proposed system includes a dual energy gamma source, composed of Barium-133 and Cesium-137 radioisotopes, and two sodium iodide detectors for recording the transmitted and scattered photons. Support Vector Machine was implemented for regime identification and Multi-Layer Perceptron with Levenberg Marquardt algorithm was utilized for void fraction prediction. Total count in the scattering detector and counts under photo peaks of Barium-133 and Cesium-137 were assigned as the inputs of networks. The results show the ability of presented system to identify the annular regime and measure the void fraction independent of petroleum pipeline's scale layer thickness. (C) 2020 The Authors.
