Experimental Investigation of Relative Permeability Upscaling from the Micro-Scale to the Macro-Scale
Experimental Investigation of Relative Permeability Upscaling from the Micro-Scale to the Macro-Scale During this reporting period, achieved the milestone of using Optical Coherence Imaging (OCI) to image to the back of the first layer of grains in a sandstone sample. This was the first time that OCI was used to image through sandstone. Information on grain geometry was obtained as deep as 400 microns into the sample. This report also describes the work performed to achieve the milestone on the measurement of interfacial area per volume, capillary pressure and saturation in two dimensional micromodels structures that are statistically similar to real porous media. This report contains the first quantitative experimental measurements of interfacial area per volume in any system.
