Robust computation of geoelectric potentials in cylindrically stratified anisotropic Earth formations

A robust semianalytical algorithm for the efficient computation of geoelectric potentials due to current electrodes in cylindrically stratified anisotropic media is discussed. The underlying

Schelkunoff Formulation of the Sommerfeld Integral for the Hertzian Dipole Located in the Vicinity of Cylindrical Structures

A numerical integration of the Sommerfeld integral is performed using the Schelkunoff formulation for cylindrical media. The Schelkunoff kernel for cylindrical media involves higher order modified

Evaluation of Eccentered Electrode-Type Resistivity Logging in Anisotropic Geological Formations With a Matrix Method

Neither translational nor rotational eccentricity can be neglected, especially in low-resistive or anisotropic geological formations, and a Levin-type method for approximating integrals with rapidly oscillatory functions is introduced to effectively perform the numerical integrals.

Robust Numerical Electromagnetic Eigenfunction Expansion Algorithms

This thesis summarizes developments in rigorous, full-wave, numerical spectraldomain (integral plane wave eigenfunction expansion [PWE]) evaluation algorithms concerning time-harmonic electromagnetic

Robust spectral-domain EM modeling of distributed-source sensors in planar-layered media

We report a rapid, robust full-wave methodology to model electromagnetic (EM) wave radiation by distributed current sources embedded in planar-layered media. Primitive causality-related numerical

Progress in Adaptive Electrical Capacitance Tomography

Electrical Capacitance Tomography (ECT) is a sensing modality commonly used to find the dielectric permittivity distribution inside a region of interest (RoI) from the boundary electrode capacitance



Finite Volume Modeling of Borehole Electromagnetic Logging in 3-D Anisotropic Formations Using Coupled Scalar-Vector Potentials

A cylindrical-grid finite-volume (FV) algorithm for the solution of time-harmonic Maxwell's equations in fully three-dimensional (3-D) anisotropic media is presented. To circumvent ill-conditioning

3-D resistivity inversion using the finite-element method

Comparisons of numerical examples show that the full inversion method gives a better resolution, particularly for the near-surface features, than does the approximate method, since the full derivatives are more sensitive to local features of resistivity variations than are the approximate derivatives.

Three-Dimensional Finite-Volume Analysis of Directional Resistivity Logging Sensors

A finite-volume (FV) technique is introduced to model directional resistivity logging sensors that employ tilted-coil antennas in 3-D anisotropic earth formations to enforces the correct continuity equations across material boundaries, avoids spurious modes, and leads to a better conditioned system matrix.

Analysis of the earth resistivity response of buried cables

Current flow in homogeneous and layered conducting media is analyzed for the case where an axial conductor or cable is present. The cable is characterized by a specified axial impedance and is

Extrapolation methods for Sommerfeld integral tails

A review is presented of the extrapolation methods for accelerating the convergence of Sommerfeld-type integrals (i.e. semi-infinite range integrals with Bessel function kernels), which arise in

NMM results are compared with 3-D simulation results using finite-difference time-domain method and a pseudoanalytical approach based on Sommerfeld integrals (for problems where the latter is applicable), showing very good agreement.

Simulation of logging-while-drilling tools in complex thee-dimensional borehole environments using a finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) scheme in cylindrical coordinates shows very good agreement.

This paper develops the analysis necessary for the computation of the response of a resistivity tool within a well bore as it traverses a thin‐invaded bed. The solution for the potential induced by a
