Connectivity Distribution

The connectivity distribution analyses all of the pores within the unit cell and determines how many throats are connected to each individual pore. Above the graph is an advanced option which allows the connectivity distribution to be normalised or view the distribution by volume of features, as exemplified below.


The connectivity distribution analysis operation provides a graphical representation of the connectivity distribution as shown below. The ink bottle (single connectivity) pores are marked in green to indicate their importance in, for example, the hysteresis of mercury during a mercury porosimetry experiment, or in cement materials.
