Advances in image processing, high-performance computing and numerical methods for digital petrophysics using micro-ct imaging

Arad, Alon


In this thesis, I investigate modelling and analyzing the properties of oil-bearing rocks through the use of micro-CT technology, image processing and numerical methods. There are three main interlinked themes to this work. (i) Processing of three-dimensional image data from micro-CT to obtain accurate 3D digital models of the grain and pore arrangement of the rock: a 'digital rock ' model. Quantitative descriptors of the rock structure can then be investigated for correlation with physical...[Show more]
