    Abstract

    In this work, a new true triaxial cell and servo-control system has been developed which is capable of applying independent and unequal radial stresses to the curved surface of a cylindrical core plug. On three reservoir sandstone analogues that show different degrees of geological heterogeneity, pulse decay permeability experiments have been conducted. For the purposes of comparison, permeabilities were measured under both true triaxial and conventional 'triaxial' conditions.
