PoreXpert Porosimetry Input File Format

The PoreXpert porosimetry file format is a very simple format which can be generated in a spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel using any experimental data that can generate a diameter and a corresponding percolation volume. If you are generating data manually, the data needs to be saved as a comma separated variable file (.CSV) in the format shown below, using English (UK) or English (USA) regional settings.


The following figure shows you the PoreXpert porosimetry file format and the table underneath the figure explain what each row contains.
