Abstract

In this paper we present an efficient and accurate numerical algorithm for simulation of sonic logging experiments. The basis of the approach is a heterogeneous finite difference method applied to acousticelastic wave equation written in velocity-stress formulation. The approach was designed to simulate wave propagation in 3D arbitrary anisotropic elastic media with attenuation. Moreover due to universality of heterogeneous finitedifferences the algorithm allows to handle with surrounding models of extreme complexity. We also present and discuss results of simulation for arbitrary anisotropic inhomogeneous models.
