Scattering of elastic waves in media with a random distribution of fluid-filled cavities: theory and numerical modelling

Hong, Tae-Kyung; Kennett, Brian


The propagation of elastic waves is modelled in media with a random distribution of fluid-filled circular cavities, which display high physical impedance in contrast to background media. Theoretical attenuation expressions for media with circular cavities, which may be filled with any material (e.g. vacuum, fluid, elastic materials), are formulated using an ensemble treatment for first-order transmitted waves. Numerical estimates of scattering attenuation rates agree with the theoretical...[Show more]
