Direct and Stochastic Generation of Network Models from Tomographic Images: Effect of Topology on Residual Saturations

Sok, Robert; Knackstedt, Mark; Sheppard, Adrian; Pinczewski, Wolf Val; Paterson, Lincoln


We generate the network model equivalents of four samples of Fontainebleau sandstone obtained from the analysis of microtomographic images. We present the measured distributions of flow-relevant geometric and topological properties of the pore space. We generate via bond dilution from a regular lattice, stochastic network models with identical geometric (pore-size, throat-size) and topological (coordination number distribution) properties. We then simulate the two-phase flow properties directly...[Show more]
