Simulate capillary pressure directly on CT scans of different materials (e.g., porous or composite materials) using the Capillary Pressure Module, which is part of Transport Phenomena Simulation Module for VGSTUDIO MAX.
The simulation of capillary pressure can be used to determine characteristics of scanned porous materials, for example in geosciences to characterize soil and rock samples.
The Capillary Pressure Module:
The pore size distribution is calculated using the approach of maximal inscribed spheres. The software uses spheres of varying size as probes and attempts to fit them into the pore space. For each point, the largest fitting sphere overlapping this point is found. The diameter of that sphere is assigned to this point as the local pore diameter.
