Transport properties of rocks from statistics and percolation
Two simplified microstructural models that account for permeability and conductivity of low-porosity rocks are compared. Both models result from statistics and percolation theory. The first modelExpand
Elastic wave velocities and permeability evolution during compaction of Bleurswiller sandstone
Field observations and laboratory experiments have recently documented the formation of compaction bands in porous sandstones [Mollema and Antonellini, Tectonophysics 1996;267:209–28; Olsson andExpand
Effects of pore collapse and grain crushing on ultrasonic velocities and Vp/Vs
[1] Compressional, shear wave velocities and their ratio, Vp/Vs, were measured along with porosity variations during wet and dry hydrostatic compaction of Bleurswiller sandstone, a 25% porosityExpand
High Vp/Vs ratio: Saturated cracks or anisotropy effects?
[1] We measured Vp/Vs ratios of thermally cracked Westerly granite, thermally cracked Carrara marble and 4% porosity Fontainebleau sandstone, for an effective mean pressure ranging from 2 to 95 MPa.Expand
Electrical spectroscopy of porous rocks: a review—I. Theoretical models
The complex dielectric permittivity e* of porous water-bearing rocks in the frequency range from a few to hundreds of megahertz reveals several intensive relaxation effects and a non-trivialExpand
Elastic wave velocities and permeability of cracked rocks
Abstract Cracks play a major role in most rocks submitted to crustal conditions. Mechanically, cracks make the rock much more compliant. They also make it much easier for fluid to flow through anyExpand
Electrical spectroscopy of porous rocks: a review—II. Experimental results and interpretation
SUMMARY In the frequency range from millihertz to hundreds of megahertz, many diVerent physical and physico-chemical processes contribute to the electrical polarization of porous water-bearing rocks.Expand
Acoustic emission and velocities associated with the formation of compaction bands in sandstone
Received 31 May 2005; revised 2 May 2006; accepted 22 June 2006; published 7 October 2006. [1] A series of laboratory experiments has been conducted in which three-dimensional (3-D) locations ofExpand
