Using nano-XRM (ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra) and high-contrast imaging of Estaillades limestone (carbonate) to inform micro-porosity permeability during Stokes-Brinkman single and two-phase flow simulations on micro-CT images using ZEISS Xradia 510 X-ray microscope and ZEISS Zen Intellesis machine learning capabilities for segmentation.
Dr Matthew Andrew, Geoscience Technologist, ZEISS Microscopy, and Dr Hannah Menke, Researcher, Heriot-Watt University, discuss latest findings.
- Multiscale XRM can be used to give insight into flow and transport processes in carbonates.
- Multiscale means across both cm to um and um to nm scales.
This data can be integrated with both modellings and in situ experiment.
- During multiphase flow, heterogeneous pore structure can mean that microporosity can dominate wetting phase flow properties at even moderate non-wetting phase fractional flows.
