Etude numérique et expérimentale d’écoulements de fluides à seuil en milieux poreux : contribution au développement d’une méthode innovante de porosimétrie

Abstract : In order to characterize porous samples, mercury injection porosmetry (MIP) is still one of the mostly used technique, but also probably one of the mostly critized due to the toxicity of this fluid. Among possible alternatives to MIP, yield stress fluids porosimetry (YSM) has the advantages to be non-toxic and cheap. Starting from flow-rate/pressure gradient Q(∇P) experimental data, the inversion process in YSM allows to determine a pore-size distribution (PSD) of the studied porous sample which, up to this day, was always idealized as a bundle of parallel capillaries with circular cross-sections. Moreover, during all the previous works on YSM, for simplicity reasons, the slip of the fluid against the pore walls was neglected. In this work, this phenomenon very caracteristic of the flow of complex fluids is taken into account in the inversion process through a mechanism involving a slipping layer.In addition, during this work, the influence of the non-circularity of the pores cross-sections on the PSDs obtained by YSM has been investigated. New YSM experimental data acquired on both samples of sintered silicate and Bentheimer sandstones have been processed by incorporating these features of slip and non-circular pore cross sections. The results show that these features strongly influence the obtained PSDs, and therefore open new doors for the future of YSM.
