North Sea, R&D project in Chalk Research IV: Interpretation of 3D permeability tests

Computer simulation of permeability tests (steady-state) on box-shaped specimens in order to estimate anisotropic permeability coefficients at very large stresses in the laboratory. Different numbers of porous filter stones and different dimensions of the test specimen were analysed.

calculations carried out wit the program ABAQUS.
