Digital rock segmentation from micro-CT/SEM data by using convolutional neural network

Pore-scale digital images are usually obtained from micro computed tomography (micro-CT) data that has been segmented into void and grain space. Image segmentation is a critical process for digital rock analyses that can influence pore-scale characterisation studies and/or the numerical simulation of petrophysical properties. This project is to study on the sandstone micro-CT image segmentation by using convolutional neural network.

4D Imaging of Acid Leaching in Porous Carbonado Diamond

Scott Eckley & Richard Ketcham
Porous carbonado diamonds were imaged in 3D using X-ray computed tomography before and after every step in a sequential acid digestion procedure. The resulting scans were registered to one another and masked to eliminate all exterior voxels (e.g. air, bag, and container). These images were then used to understand the effects of different acids on the pore-filling minerals. We were also able to assess how the nature of pore-filling material can affect measurements of porosity.

Pore scale multiphase flow experiments in bead packs of variable wettability

Zuleima Karpyn
The aim of this experimental study is to investigate the impact of wetting characteristics on multiphase flow, sweep efficiency, and residual fluid distribution in unconsolidated porous media. A sequence of oil and water injections was performed on bead packs with uniform porosity and permeability, but different wettability characteristics. Uniform and mixed wet bead packs with varying degree of wettability were fabricated to analyze how the residual saturation profiles and the distribution of fluid phases at...

Bidisperse sphere packs generated under gravity

Hugh Daigle Abhishek Bihani
Bidisperse sphere packs were generated under the effect of gravity to model mudrocks and study the petrophysical properties consisting of small (clay) and large (silt) grains. Multiple, periodic, dense, bidisperse sphere packs were created with large grain volume concentrations (VL) increasing from 0 to 100 %. This was done for large to small grain radius ratios of 2:1, 5:1, 7:1, and 10:1 with constant sphere pack length 10 units in x, y, z directions. The...

Dataset of 3D fluid phase distribution from drainage simulations (in micromodel and real rock geometry) examining inertial effects

Yu Chen, Qinjun Kang, Albert Valocchi & Hari Viswanathan
The dataset contains fluid phase distribution obtained from high-resolution drainage simulations in both a heterogenous micromodel and Bentheimer sandstone. The purpose is to investigate the influence of inertial effects on scCO2-brine displacement in complex geometries, where scCO2 is much less viscous than brine or oil meaning that the inertial effects may not be negligible. The direct numerical simulations in this work employ the continuum-surface-force based color-gradient multiple-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann model combined with a geometrical wetting...

The porous medium is generated by sintering glass bead (1.0 mm) with salt inclusions and then dissolving the inclusion with water flooding. Smaller sized glass bead particles (25 and 100 um) are injected in the proxy media to establish straining. Medical CT images of before and after injection are presented for two different flow rates (40 and 60...
