SINOPSIS

Using x-ray micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) for quantitative measurements in porous media is inherently challenged by uncertainties, which need to be identified and quantified to enable meaningful interpretation of measurements. For this purpose, we present results of experiments using micro-CT to measure the three-dimensional distribution of diffusion-accessible porosity and time-variant iodide tracer concentration within dolostone and sandstone samples. The precision, detection limits and spatial resolution of measurements were determined. Using a 0.6 M iodide tracer, the precision of attenuation coefficient measurement was approximately ±4%, in both the dolostone and sandstone samples. The precision for diffusion-accessible porosity and solute concentration measurements were ±7% and ±0.04 M, with detection limits of 20% and 0.12 M, respectively. The spatial resolution of measurement was 40 μm, representing the minimum size of features that can be distinctively resolved in a reconstructed image with 18.23 μm voxel size.
