Critical porosity; a key to relating physical properties to porosity in rocks
Discovering accurate relations between porosity and seismic wave velocities in porous rocks has been an important topic of rock physics for decades. Such relations, if they actually exist, areExpand
Estimating grain-scale fluid effects on velocity dispersion in rocks
The magnitude of the grain‐scale local flow effect on velocity dispersion in saturated rocks is quantified, by estimating the high‐frequency unrelaxed shear and bulk frame moduli, which are thenExpand
The effect of a percolation threshold in the Kozeny‐Carman relation
One of the most important properties of reservoir rocks, and perhaps the most difficult to predict, is permeability. Laboratory studies have shown that permeability depends on a long list ofExpand
Quantitative Seismic Interpretation
Seismic data analysis is one of the key technologies for characterizing reservoirs and monitoring subsurface pore fluids. While there have been great advances in 3D seismic data processing, theExpand
Bounds on low‐frequency seismic velocities in partially saturated rocks
The most common technique for estimating seismic velocities in rocks with mixed pore fluid saturations is to use Gassmann’s relations with an effective fluid whose density and compressibility areExpand
Critical porosity; the key to relating physical properties to porosity in rocks
Many classes of rock such as sandstones, dolomites, chalks, and cracked igneous rocks have each a distinct characteristic porosity above which the material behaves as s suspension. The porosity atExpand
Fluid distribution effect on sonic attenuation in partially saturated limestones
Extensional and torsional wave‐attenuation measurements are obtained at a sonic frequency around 1 kHz on partially saturated limestones using large resonant bars, 1 m long. To study the influence ofExpand
