Our new paper on prediction of permeability and formation factor of sandstone with hybrid lattice Boltzmann/finite element simulation on microtomographic images has published in IJRMMS. In this work, we compare the hybrid lattice Boltzmann/finite element calculation with experimental data on Fontainebleau sandstone specimens of a variety of porosity. We found that the LB simulations actually yield quite accuracy predictions, both on formation factor and permeability tensors. Special thanks for my co-author Professor Teng-fong Wong from Chinese University of Hong Kong who taught me a lot during the research. [URL]
