Effect of fluid H2O on compressional wave velocities in quartz aggregate up to 500°C at 0.5 GPa

Abstract

Compressional wave velocities (Vp) in quartz aggregate were measured to quantify the effect of pore fluid (H2O) on Vp at high pressure-temperature (P-T). Ultrasonic measurements were conducted on dry and wet quartz aggregate from room temperature to 500°C at 0.5 GPa using a piston cylinder apparatus. The experiment showed a 4% decrease in measured Vp in… (More)
