Fundamentals of Experimental Techniques for generating Input data
PoreXpert's primary ability is to inverse model the measured percolation characteristics of porous samples.
The experimental measurement techniques currently supported by PoreXpert are mercury porosimetry, porometry and water retention. Adsorption and surface area measurements can be used as indirect input.
This Part provides details about the theory of these techniques within the context of their use by PoreXpert for data input. So you should read sections relevant to your own experiments and materials to avoid modelling artefacts and errors. Also included are recommendations to improve your experimental technique and a comparison of porometry and mercury porosimetry.
