Fractal geometry of rocks

Radlinski, A P; Radlinska, Ewa; Agamalian, M; Wignall, G D; Lindner, P; Randl, O G


The analysis of small- and ultra-small-angle neutron scattering data for sedimentary rocks shows that the pore-rock fabric interface is a surface fractal (Ds = 2.82) over 3 orders of magnitude of the length scale and 10 orders of magnitude in intensity. The fractal dimension and scatterer size obtained from scanning electron microscopy image processing are consistent with neutron scattering data.
