The impact of seismic vibrational amplitude and frequency in dislodging an entrapped diesel globule in a pore model is experimentally studied. The effective change occurring inside a 3D printed pore model estimated from a systematic image analysis methodology is developed to represent the oil recovery. The pore model is subjected to sinusoidal vibrations with amplitudes ranging from 0.1 mm to 2 mm and frequencies ranging from 5 to 100 Hz. Dislodgment of entrapped diesel is observed for frequency values between 40 and 80 Hz with vibration amplitude above 0.5 mm. Even though increasing the vibration frequency increases the vibration-induced acceleration, the dislodgment of the entrapped fluid is not observed at higher frequencies. Smaller vibration amplitudes imparted by the shaker and a possible slip flow at the oscillating walls occurring at higher frequencies are reasoned for this observation.
