TECHNICAL SHEET

ACOUSTIC FULL WAVE FWS

Generalities

Principle Casing
A piezo-electric transmitter stimulated by a high-voltage head
pulse radiates a high-frequency acoustic wavelet. This is
coupled via the borehole fluid and formation to each
receiver. The probe records the full sonic wave train at all GR
receivers simultaneously.
Result
VDL, formation compressional velocity (slowness), time of Water
first arrival (t). level

Interest
Estimation of the mechanical properties of the rock (with
RC3
compressional and shear slowness and bulk density),
spectral analysis, sonic amplitude and attenuation
measurements, density and porosity estimation, fracture
location etc
RC2
Option
Natural gamma sensor, shear velocity (slowness),
mechanical moduli (with bulk density).
