Pore network modelling of two-phase flow in porous rock: the effect of correlated Heterogeneity

Knackstedt, Mark; Sheppard, Adrian; Sahimi, Muhammad


Using large scale computer simulations and pore network models of porous rock, we investigate the effect of correlated heterogencity on two-phase flow through porous media. First, we review and discuss the experimental evidence for correlated heterogeneity. We then employ the invasion percolation model of two-phase flow in porous media to study the effect of correlated heterogeneity on rate-controlled mercury porosimetry, the breakthrough and residual saturations, and the size distribution of...[Show more]
