Mapping permeability in low-resolution micro-CT images: a multiscale statistical approach

Botha, Pieter W. S. K.; Sheppard, Adrian


We investigate the possibility of predicting permeability in low-resolution microcomputed tomography (μCT). Lower-resolution whole core images give greater sample coverage and are therefore more representative of heterogeneous systems; however, the lower resolution causes connecting pore throats to be represented by intermediate gray scale values and limits information on pore system geometry, rendering such images inadequate for direct permeability simulation. We present an imaging and...[Show more]
