The solution of the problem of determining the permeabilities of petroleum reservoir rocks from measurements employing the flow of a gas through large cylindrical cores, transverse to the axis of the cores, is presented. This solution is obtained by solving the corresponding problem in potential theory, the method of conformal transformations of complex variables being employed. An electrolytic model study of this problem is described and a comparison of the theoretical and experimental solutions presented.
