Title: Permeability-porosity relationship: a reexamination of Kozeny-Carman equation based on a fractal pore-space geometry assumption
Series/Report no.: /33 (2006)
Publisher: AGU
Issue Date: 2006

Abstract: The relationship between permeability and porosity is reviewed and investigated. The classical Kozeny-Carman approach and a fractal pore-space geometry assumption are used to derive a new permeability-porosity equation. The equation contains only two fitting parameters: a Kozeny coefficient and a fractal exponent. The strongest features of the model are related to its simplicity and its capability to describe measured permeability values of different non-granular porous media better than other models.
