Jun 21, 2018 · Knowledge of the strength and elastic modulus of a reservoir rock is important for the optimisation of a particular geothermal resource. The reservoir rock for many geothermal projects in the Upper Rhine Graben, such as those at SoultzsousForêts and Rittershoffen (both France), is porphyritic granite. High fracture densities (up to ~ 30 fractures/m) in this reservoir rock require that we ...
Get PriceThe bulk modulus values of the solid clay phase (K s) lie between 6 and 12 GPa and shear (μ s) modulus values vary between 4 and 6 GPa. A comparison is made between the accuracy of velocity prediction in shaley sandstones and claywater and claysand mixtures using the values measured in this study and those from theoretical models.
Get PriceIn this article, I discuss a new approach to the derivation of the rock physics template, or RPT. I first discuss pore space stiffness and use the BettiRayleigh reciprocity theorem to derive Gassmann's equation from the dry and saturated pore space stiffnesses. I then show empirically that the dry rock pore space stiffness stays constant over a range of porosities for a constant pore pressure.

Densities of various sands are listed below, 1. Loose sand has a density of 1442 kg / m3 as it is a dry form of sand. 2. Dry sand itself has a density of 1602 kg ...
Get PriceThe substitution of the theoretical relationship into Kuster–Toksöz theory will generate the formulae for the bulk and shear moduli of multiple‐porosity dry rocks, which is named the multiple‐porosity variable critical porosity model. The new model has been used to .
Get PriceNov 16, 2019 · Gassmann's theory provides the bulk modulus in fluidsaturated rock (K Sat) as a function of the dry rock bulk modulus (K Dry), the bulk modulus of the solid phase (K s), that of the pore fluid (K f), and total porosity (ϕ). It assumes that the shear modulus is fluidindependent

Get PriceThe conclusion is reached that the Geertsma dry rock bulk modulus model leads to significant overestimates of the effect of gas, particularly in porosities less than about 20% (DT of 85 microseconds per foot). Geertsma vs. Porosity. Mavko/Biot vs. Porosity. Nur vs. Porosity.
Get PriceThe porosity,, is the fractional pore volume of a rock (for example the black zone in the cross section of a sedimentary rock to the right). The total mass of a volume of rock, V T, is made up of the mass of the pore fluid, of density df, plus the mass of the matrix minerals of density dma. The density measured is the bulk density db.
Get PriceJan 27, 2019 · Bulk Modulus (K) = Volumetric stress / Volumetric strain. This is the same as saying it equals the change in pressure divided by the change in volume divided by initial volume: Bulk Modulus (K) = (p1 p0) / [ (V1 V0) / V0] Here, p 0 and V 0 are the initial pressure and volume, respectively, and p 1 and V1 are the pressure and volume measured ...
