Transport in sandstone: A study based on three dimensional microtomography

Authors


Abstract

High resolution imaging of the microstructure of Fontainebleau sandstone allows a direct comparison between theoretical calculations and laboratory measurements. While porosity, pore-volume-to-surface ratio, permeability, and end point relative permeability are well predicted by our calculations, we find that electrical resistivity and wetting phase residual saturation are both overestimated.
