Abstract: Savonnieres, a French layered oolithic limestone, shows important ink-bottle effects. As a consequence, a great discrepancy is observed between the results of different techniques to determine the pore volume distribution. It is shown that mercury intrusion porosimetry results can be considered as the main drainage curve and are, for this kind of materials, not convenient to determine the apparent pore volume distribution due to hysteresis phenomena. The main wetting curve is obtained using image analysing techniques on SEM-micrographs, combined with pressure membrane apparatus results on capillary saturated samples.
