Abstract:

A three-dimensional digitized image of a porous magnetic gel is determined by x-ray microtomographic techniques. The complex connected pore-space topology is quantitatively characterized by measuring a variety of statistical correlation functions, including the chord-length distribution function, the pore-size distribution function, and the Lineal-path function. This structural information is then employed to estimate transport properties, such as the fluid permeability and trapping rate, of the gel.
