Effect of Network Topology on Relative Permeability
We consider the role of topology on drainage relative permeabilities derived from network models. We describe the topological properties of rock networks derived from a suite of tomographic images of Fontainbleau sandstone (Lindquist et al., 2000). All rock networks display a broad distribution of coordination number and the presence of long-range topological bonds. We show the importance of accurately reproducing sample topology when deriving relative permeability curves from the model...[Show more]
