Knowing the physical properties of rock, enhances the knowledge of engineers to predict more accurately e.g. the flow of water / gas or oil, the production rate and/or capacity of reservoirs and the composition of resources beneficial and important to mankind. This paper focuses on radiation based analytical techniques such as neutron and X-ray radiography and tomography to determine and validate existing data about some important physical properties of rock. Through this study, it is seen that neutrons have the ability to penetrate more easily geological laboratory samples and provide important information to geologist and scientists on a non-destructive basis.
