Paper Title:
Determination of the Pore Sizes and their Influence on the Capillary Imbibition into Glass Wool
  Abstract

A glass wool media is commonly classified as a medium made up of many capillaries. They might, however, be considered analogous to a network of tubes as a bundle of capillaries. The capillary pressure of such a medium would be dependent on the amount of fluid held within the bundles. But, this very simple picture of porous media does not capture all the characteristics of this imbibition. We have determined capillaries radii by using Washburn and Laplace relations. Laplace radius can also be obtained by 3 approaches: using White’s relation and using Jurin’s law with visualized height and with weight. We have observed a single value of capillary radius cannot be used to determine the infiltration height as a function of time. This mechanism of capillary infiltration can be controlled by pores of more than one size and pores are interconnected.
