In China’s energy consumption structure, coal is the main energy source, accounting for about 60% of primary energy consumption. Coal is a porous medium with complex pore structures. Nanopore structure in coal particle is the basic underlying factor driving coal particle strength. A better knowledge of nanopore structure – coal particle strength correlation is of great significance for coal mining and other fields of engineering problems.
How Amira-Avizo Software is used
Pore structure analysis, including Region of Interest (ROI) extraction, noise filtration, image segmentation, and pore size statistics, was completed using Avizo Software.
To conduct numerical simulation, the tetrahedral element meshes was generated by Avizo software.
