Velocity-porosity relationships: Predictive velocity model for cemented sands composed of multiple mineral phases
Computer simulations are used to calculate the elastic properties of model cemented sandstones composed of two or more mineral phases. Two idealized models are considered - a grain-overlap clay/quartz mix and a pore-lining clay/quartz mix. Unlike experimental data, the numerical data exhibit little noise yet cover a wide range of quartz/cement ratios and porosities. The results of the computations are in good agreement with experimental data for clay-bearing consolidated sandstones. The ef...[Show more]
