In this paper, a stochastic geometrical modeling method for reconstructing three dimensional multiscale pore structures of porous materials is presented. In this method, the pore structure in porous materials is represented by a random but spatially correlated pore-network, in which the results of the Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (MIP) experiment are used as the basic input information. Beside that, based on the Monte Carlo techniques, an effective computer generation algorithm is developed, and the quantities to evaluate the properties of porous materials are defined and described. Furthermore, numerical implementations are conducted based on experimental data afterwards. This method can be used to generate multiscale pore structure models of a wide class of porous materials.
