Effect of Network Topology on Relative Permeability

Arns, Ji-Youn; Robins, Vanessa; Sheppard, Adrian; Sok, Robert; Pinczewski, Wolf Val; Knackstedt, Mark


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]
