Abstract

Realistic porous structures typical of those made by replication of packed beds of spherical particles have been produced by a novel modelling method. Fluid dynamics simulation of the permeability of these structures agrees well with experimental measurements and similar modelling of structures derived from X-ray tomographic images. By varying the model structures the textquotedblleftbottlenecktextquotedblright flow concept proposed by analytical models in the literature was substantiated, confirming the high dependence of permeability on the size of the windows connecting the pores but also highlighting the need for accurate determination of the connectivity of the pores for these models to be accurate.
