Three-dimensional Imaging of Multiphase Flow in Porous Media
This paper reports progress in the 3D pore-scale micro-CT imaging of multiple fluid phases during drainage experiments in porous materials. Experiments performed on a sintered monodisperse bead pack and a Berea sandstone sample are described. It is observed that the residual (trapped) wetting phase in the sintered bead pack is present as pendular rings, bridges between adjacent grains and lenses within pore throats. Estimates of the residual wetting phase saturation are in accord with previous...[Show more]
