Abstract: 

Fast X-ray microtomography (uCT) is a recent technological advancement that allows for the generation of near real-time visualization of multi-phase flow in 3-dimensional porous media. Synchrotron and lab-based fast uCT methods will be discussed with particular emphasis on synchrotron work. A case study of two-phase flow will be discussed and how specific fluid-fluid interfacial area generation is affected by the imposition of quasi-static or transient flow conditions. Transient flow has not been experimentally possible to visualize with standard uCT methods.
