abstract={In this thesis, the impact of the particle size distribution and spatial correlations

types of microstructural descriptors, the pore size distribution and the two-point
probability function. Fluid dynamics simulations, from which the fluid permeability
is obtained, are performed using a lattice Boltzmann method-based software. The
results suggest that there is a linear relationship between the fluid permeability and
the squared mean of the pore size distribution. This relationship holds for isotropic

on the flow direction. It is also shown that the two-point probability function may
be used to investigate the order and correlations in the structures, as well as to
characterize clustering.},

AB In this thesis, the impact of the particle size distribution and spatial correlations
