7
© Fraunhofer ITWM 7 Capillary Pressure / Pore Morphology Method Young – Laplace equation (pore radius cap. pressure) => Pore size distribution gives saturation at given cap. pressure But: connectivity of pores ? Pore Morphology Method: adds connectivity checks to Young-Laplace low numerical cost non-wetting fluid wetting fluid r

© Fraunhofer ITWM 8 Drainage Hilpert / Miller 2001 Guarantees connectivity of NWP to reservoir Idea: move in spheres Start: completely wet Start: large radius (i.e. small p c ) Steps: smaller radius (higher p c ) No residual water Non-wetting phase (air) reservoir Wetting phase (water) reservoir

17
© Fraunhofer ITWM 17 Permeability Macroscopic description (homogenized porous media model) Darcys law : u : average flow velocity : permeability tensor unknown : viscosity p : pressure Microscopic description (pore structure model) Stokes equation: Boundary conditions: no-slip on surface, pressure drop can be determined from the solution!

19
© Fraunhofer ITWM 19 Relative Permeability Idea: Combine phase distributions from pore morphology single-phase flow Advantage: low computational costs stability

20
© Fraunhofer ITWM 20 Relative Permeability (Sandstone) Choose saturation level, choose wetting model Use PM to find air distribution (here: yellow) Solve Stokes equation in remaining pore space
