In texturally equilibrated porous media the pore geometry evolves to minimize the energy of the liquid-solid interfaces, while maintaining the dihedral angle θ at solid-solid-liquid contact lines. We present computations of three-dimensional texturally equilibrated pore networks using a level-set method. Our results show that the grain boundaries with the(More)
Deep geological storage sites for nuclear waste are commonly located in rock salt to ensure hydrological isolation from groundwater. The low permeability of static rock salt is due to a percolation threshold. However, deformation may be able to overcome this threshold and allow fluid flow. We confirm the percolation threshold in static experiments on(More)
