Sensitivity of Pore-Scale Flow and Dispersion to Properties of Random Bead Packs

Robert Maier, Mark Schure, Joe Seymour & Robert Maier
Comparisons between pore-scale simulations and physical experiments are complicated by the difficulty of reproducing the geometry of the experimental porous medium. For example, obtaining the coordinates of the beads in experimental bead packings is difficult, so pore-scale simulations typically develop geometry with some type of sphere-packing algorithm. Simulated and experimental geometries may have similar porosity but otherwise no direct correspondence. Flow and dispersion are affected by resulting differences in packing density, random packing variations, mild...
