Averaging the equilibrium capillary pressure-saturation relationship

In my master research, I investigate the effect of different averaging methods on the sample-scale equilibrium Pc-Sw relationship. Further, I investigate what factors influence the residual wetting phase saturation that can be reached in a sample column. I do this by performing numerical simulations. The results show that the capillary pressure-saturation relationship at the sample scale is not an intrinsic property of the porous medium, but dependent on factors such as measurement techniques, boundary conditions, or averaging methods.
