Pore-scale reconstruction and simulating flow processes in 3D printed rocks

This project aimed to apply our in-house pore-network modelling software tools to reconstruct complex pore-network geometries in carbonate rocks. It also used our direct pore-scale simulators to study flow and transport process from laboratory experiments that were carried out in artificial, but geologically realistic, rocks generated using 3D printing.
