Lecture by prof. Veerle Cnudde (Department of Geology) on current possibilities and challenges in non-destructive pore-scale imaging of geomaterials and fluid flow models.

Physical, chemical and biological weathering has a constant effect on the earth’s landscape and also impacts our building infrastructure.
To understand the macroscopical behaviour of geomaterials their pore scale properties and processes have to be understood. To do this several non-destructive 3D and 4D methods are available. This, in combination with pore scale modelling is an essential step towards understanding and predicting a geomaterial’s macroscopic behaviour correctly.

We will discuss the current possibilities and challenges in non-destructive pore-scale imaging of geomaterials and how this data can be used as input for fluid flow models and their validation as well as. New developments at the synchrotron and on lab-based X-ray systems related to material characterization and to the understanding of pore-scale processes are discussed.
