Solution to Archie's law puzzle in porous media
Abstract: Archie's law, proposed around 80 years ago, relates transport and geometry in porous media; specifically, the electrical conductivity $\sigma$ is proposed to depend on the porosity $\phi$ as $\sigma \propto (\phi - \phi_c)^{m}$.
Despite being widely used and evaluated in a variety of porous media, details are poorly understood.
It is observed that the threshold porosity $\phi_c$ is practically zero, the exponent $m$ is confined to different ranges, and it is unclear what it depends on. Percolation theory is used to provide a solution and physical explanation to the puzzle associated with this small threshold porosity and the $m$ values that characterize Archie's law. It is shown that this law represents a phase transition phenomenon, and that the predictions from this solution are compatible with various experimental results.
