Title: Physical Analysis of Oil Sands

Author(s): P. G. Nutting (2)


Since the work on rock and grain densities by A. F. Melcher at the United States Geological Survey, described by him in 1920, various improvements and refinements have been introduced in the methods and apparatus used there. A new form of precision pycnometer and new methods are described, with a simple method of measuring permeability. Common sources of error and the interpretation of results are discussed in some detail.
