Acoustic logging measures and records the velocity of acoustic energy
(seismic waves) in the material adjacent to the borehole. A transmitter
located at one end of the sonde generates an electro-mechanical pulse
that is transmitted through the borehole fluid into the borehole wall
and by refraction to a receiver located at the other end of the sonde.
The propagation velocities of the seismic waves can be calculated by
travel times and distance traveled from transmitter to receiver. The
devices must be operated in a fluid-filled borehole.
shear, and surface waves propagate in and along the wall and then, as
compressional waves, back through the borehole fluid to the receiver.
Compressional waves have the highest velocity and arrive first, followed
by the shear waves and the surface waves. Borehole Compensated Sonic
logging tools with two receivers and transmitters cancel the borehole
fluid travel times so that only the refracted wave paths through the
borehole wall are measured. Sonic logging tools are often combine with
other tools such as Resistivity, Nuclear, and borehole geometry tools
for a complete formation evaluation solution.
