The term "digital rock technology" has taken root in the oil and gas industry in the last decade. It refers to high-resolution 3D imaging of porous rocks, following by image analysis and computational modeling to extract information ranging from mineralogy to rock mechanics to multiphase flow behavior. This talk will provide a brief history and introduction to image-based modeling, illustrate the significant computational and modeling challenges, and show selected ongoing research at LSU.
