Porosity and pore size distribution in a sedimentary

The analyses of the rock cores indicated that the largest pore diameters may be accessible to entry of the nonaqueous form of TCE. Although the porosity associated with the largest pore diameters is small (~ 0.1%), that volume of TCE can significantly affect the total TCE that is retained in the rock matrix. The dimensions of the largest pore diameters may also be accessible to microbes responsible for

Chapter 4 Engineering Classification of Rock Materials

Rock material properties that are essential in assessing hydraulic erodibility of rock include rock type, color, particle size, texture, hardness, and strength. Seismic velocity, weathering, and secondary cavities are prop-erties related to both the rock material and mass. Rock material properties can be described in

Rock Sizing for Drainage Channels Catchments and

2014-7-4  A 36% increase in rock size is recommended for rounded rock. The rock should be durable and resistant to weathering, and should be proportioned so that neither the breadth nor the thickness of a single rock is less than one-third its length. In most situations the nominal rock size is usually between 100 mm to 450 mm.

Pore size determination using normalized J-function

2015-6-1  The square root of k over φ is known as rock quality index (RQI), which is used in rock type determination . Therefore, the Eq. can be written as follows: (5) J (S w) = P c γ cos θ R Q I. As it is shown in Eq.,the normalized J-function can be applied for a single rock type which has the uniform rock properties . Due to the dependency of capillary pressure to the pore size radius of reservoir rock, using the J-function would be a reasonable method to determine pore size for a rock
