Silin, D. B., Jin, G., and Patzek, T. W., “Robust determination of the pore-space morphology in sedimentary rocks,” Journal of Petroleum Technology, 69-70, May 2004.
This approach to study the morphology (shapes and connectivity) of sedimentary-rock pore space is based on fundamental concepts of mathematical morphology. An efficient and stable algorithm is proposed that distinguishes between the pore bodies and pore throats and establishes their respective volumes and connectivity.
