Since the challenges of E&P in oil and gas industries have grown during the last decades due to more complicated reservoir conditions the need for good geomechanical data has also increased. The same is true for mining and geotechnical engineering, in particular the field of nuclear and chemical waste disposal with its tremendous safety requests.
Gesteinslabor Dr. Eberhard Jahns provides a wide variety of rock mechanical testing procedures from conventional uniaxial and triaxial tests which follow international standards such as to advanced procedures such as compressibility tests and the determination of the Biot coefficient and other advanced moduli. Our portfolio is expanded by our expertise in threshold pressure, permeability and porosity measurements even under in situ conditions.
Recently, the article "Determination of capillary threshold pressure with hydrogen gas" was published in the journal EEK.
Gesteinslabor has successfully completed the development of a new test rig to determine the capillary threshold pressure with hydrogen.
