Slow compressional wave in porous media: Finite difference simulations on micro-scale
MetadataShow full item record
We perform wave propagation simulations in porous media on microscale in which a slow compressional wave can be observed. Since the theory of dynamic poroelasticity was developed by Biot (1956), the existence of the type II or Biot's slow compressional wave (SCW) remains the most controversial of its predictions. However, this prediction was confirmed experimentally in ultrasonic experiments. The purpose of this paper is to observe the SCW by applying a recently developed viscoelastic displacement-stress rotated staggered finite-difference (FD) grid technique to solve the elastodynamic wave equation. To our knowledge this is the first time that the slow compressional wave is simulated on first principles.
