Advances in micro-CT imaging of porous materials provide the opportunity to extract representative networks from the images. This improves the predictive capability of pore scale network models to predict multiphase flow transport properties. However, all these predictions need to be validated with laboratory experimental data. The experimental data for such validation may either be from the literature or newly conducted laboratory experiments on same outcrops. This paper presents the review of some of the available Pc – Sw experimental data available in the literature for validating the predictions made by network models.
