Petrophysics Laboratory The Petrophysics Laboratory at Université Laval contains a range of equipment designed to aid the investigation of the basic, electrical and electro-kinetic properties of rocks. Much of the equipment has been designed and built in-house to ensure that its specifications meet those required in high quality research. Capabilities include : Porosity measurement by He porosimetry, Hg porosimetry and fluid imbibition. Permeability measurement using a Coberly-Stevens type klinkenberg permeameter, and by liquid flow. Complex electrical properties (conductivity, resistivity and permittivity) of rocks, glass bead packs and granular materials using a Solartron 1260A impedance spectrometer. DC streaming potential of rock and using a Jouniaux type electro-kinetic cell. AC streaming potential of granular materials using a newly designed cell. Magnetic susceptibility by portable probe. Numerical modelling of linked partial differential equations in 3D on a dedicated work station running FEMlab.
