Numerical simulations have been demonstrated as a powerful tool to study rock physics in multiple scales. Pore-scale simulations in digital rock samples, in particular, facilitate the investigation of micro-/macroscale physical phenomena and measurements in core samples. The simulation results can therefore improve the conventional interpretation of core data and well logging methods, including NMR, electric and dielectric measurements, permeability, mineralogy, fluid flow, etc. The objectives of this special section are to investigate new methods for numerical simulations, improve interpretation of rock physics data, and discover new interpretation techniques for petrophysical evaluation in complex formations.
The editors of Interpretation (http://www.seg.org/interpretation) invite papers on the topic Interpretation of lab rock-physics data by numerical simulations for publication in a February 2017 special section to supplement the journal's regular technical papers on various subject areas.
Submission deadline: 1 June 2016
