The results of an experimental and theoretical study of consolidated, acid-cleaned fused glass beads are presented. Measurements of the spin-lattice lifetime, permeability, and capillary pressure curves in conjunction with digital analysis of scanning electron microscope images and theoretical modeling lead to a description of this porous material consistent with the fast diffusion picture of nuclear magnetic relaxation.
