Characterization, Reconstruction and Transport Properties of Vosges Sandstones

Abstract : A thorough study of Vosges sandstone samples is presented in this work. First, the geometry of these porous media is analyzed using serial thin sections. Then, random numerical samples are reconstructed according to the measured statistical geometrical parameters. Finally, the macroscopic transport properties are determined from the numerical solutions in the reconstructed samples of the local equations governing the corresponding transport phenomena and compared to available experimental data. Mercury intrusion in the simulated media is modelled and pore size distribution results are compared with those obtained from serial tomography.
