M-Tortuosity computation (Mean Tortuosity)
3D representation of the propagation through the plug porosity network from the seeds.
Reactiv’IP worked in collaboration with IFPEN to propose a new porous media descriptor module.
This descriptor, called M-tortuosity, describes the porous part complexity of a material perceived by a spherical particle traveling through it.
Based on a Monte Carlo process, this descriptor handles disconnections and is applicable on complex multi-scale micro-structures.
Real images, from electron tomography for instance, with a meaningless void can be described now.
M-Tortuosity display within IPSDK Explorer
The proposed script can be imported into IPSDK Explorer as a macro interface. Use the Functions | Macro Interface | Import macro interface menu to import it. The functionality will appear in the toolbar of IPSDK Explorer as a new button.
