Theory and Laboratory Experiments of Elastic Wave Scattering by Dry Planar Fractures


[1] Remote sensing of fractures with elastic waves is important in fields ranging from seismology to nondestructive testing. In many geophysical applications, fractures control the flow of fluids such as water, hydrocarbons or magma. While previous analytic descriptions of scattering mostly deal with very large or very small fractures (compared to the… (More)
