Abstract Estimation of permeability in partially molten rocks requires knowledge of the melt phase distribution at the grain-scale. The melt distribution in an isotropic two-phase (solid+melt) system under equilibrium conditions is well defined. In such a system, all of the melt channels are identical and they are either interconnected or isolated depending upon the dihedral angle and the melt fraction. A simple power-law relationship between permeability, grain size and melt fraction has been… CONTINUE READING
