Numerical simulations have been demonstrated as a powerful tool to study rock physics in multiple scales. Pore-scale simulations in digital rock samples, particularly, facilitate the investigation of microscale physical phenomena and measurements in core samples. The multiscale simulation results can improve the conventional interpretation of core data and well-logging methods, including electric measurements, fluid flow, permeability, acoustic waves, etc. This special section is devoted to investigating new multiscale simulation methods and improving the interpretation of rock-physics data in complex formations.
