Trapping Thresholds in Invasion Percolation

Paterson, Lincoln; Sheppard, Adrian; Knackstedt, Mark


We give numerical estimates for the site percolation trapping thresholds for invasion percolation on various three dimensional lattices. We find that in most cases the thresholds for invasion and ordinary percolation coincide. However, for coordination numbers less than five the thresholds diverge. Since most rock networks exhibit coordination numbers less than five the rules for simulating residual saturation in porous rocks must be chosen carefully.
