Network models that represent the void space of a rock by a lattice of pores connected by throats can predict relative permeability once the pore geometry and wettability are known. Micro-computerized-tomography scanning provides a three-dimensional image of the pore space. However, these images cannot be directly input into network models. In this paper a modified maximal ball algorithm, extending the work of Silin and Patzek [D. Silin and T. Patzek, Physica A 371, 336 (2006)], is developed to… CONTINUE READING
