Capillary rise in vuggy porous media

Project Cover Image


Capillary rise experiments are conducted in homogeneous and vuggy porous media. The cores have been prepared using the method outlined in Khan et al. (2019). Capillary rise in vuggy and homogeneous porous media is conducted inside a micro-CT scanner (X-ray microtomograph Nikon XT-H 225 with 225 kV microfocus X-ray source with 3 ┬Ám focal spot size and an X-ray detector Varian Paxscan 1500 by 1900 pixels) at a resolution of ~25 microns. The scanner is located in Prof. Espinoza's laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin, Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering.
