LEVERETT J-FUNCTION The Leverett J-Function (Leverett, 1941; Craig, 1971) is a normalized (dimensionless) representation of capillary pressure (P c ) measurement data, which attempts to eliminate some of the dependencies upon measurement protocol and conditions, making it easier to compare measurements from multiple core samples. The J-Function representations are claimed to be dependent only upon: pore size distribution, radius of the largest pore(s), fluid wettability, and interfacial tension of the fluid pair involved BASIC DEFINITIONS...
