Abstract: In classical flow through permeable rock, the pressure drop is linearly distributed through the medium. Shear induced structure materials, surfactant/co-solute pairs, were added to retard flow in higher permeability rock samples. A novel core holder allows the axial pressure distribution along the flow direction to be measured. This enables the pressure drop to be measured as a function of distance along the core. The results show the spatial scale and the effect on pressure distribution associated with varyin…
