An experimental technique based on scanning a thin field of view through a volume of interest and micro-PIV is used to determine velocity field within a micro porous media. Statistical methods are used to investigate the characteristic distributions of velocity for the micro scale flow. The similarity in velocity trends between macro porous media and micro porous media is established. The behavior of these characteristic velocity distributions in a single pore and multipore systems is discussed.
