Berea Sandstone

Berea sandstones generally do not suffer from permeability reduction during a brine flood. Neglecting the effects of capillary pressure, the model was used to simulate the two-phase flow test. Relative permeability data were obtained by matching the simulated results with the measured pressure drop across the core as shown in Figure 11-3.

We develop a model for predicting porosity and permeability changes in Berea sandstone. The model has been kept as simple as possible in order to facilitate incorporation of the model into existing mechanics codes. For this reason we assume the existence of a separate material model capable of predicting the stress-strain response of the rock.
