The authors have chosen to emphasize the physical aspect of the problem. Although the theory is also rigorously developed, it is buttressed by detailed descriptions of the texture of porous media and by the presentation of measurements and experimental applications. This book includes a state-of-the-art description and a critical analysis of problems of acoustics in porous media. By including the most recent findings, it also endeavors to be a guide to the increasingly abundant literature devoted to such problems.
Contents: 1. Porous media. 2. Wave propagation in saturated porous media. 3. Wave propagation and vibration in viscoelastic media (unidimensional). 4. Experimental techniques for measuring velocities and attenuations. 5. Wave propagation in porous media. Results and mechanisms. 6. Waves and interfaces. 7. Some applications in petroleum geophysics. Bibliography. Index.
