Relative Permeability from Tomographic Images: Effect of Correlated Heterogeneity
We examine the calculation of relative permeability and residual saturation using networks derived from tomographic images of Fontainebleau sandstone previously used to successfully calculate single-phase transport properties. In contrast to electrical conductivity and permeability calculations, we find that that computed relative permeabilities and residual saturations for samples of the same sandstone display a high degree of variability. Randomizing pores and throats to remove all...[Show more]
