Wave Propagation in Poroelastic Media Saturated by Two Fluids

1997-6-1
<jats:p>A theory of wave propagation in isotropic poroelastic media saturated by two immiscible Newtonian fluids is presented. The macroscopic constitutive relations, and mass and momentum balance equations are obtained by volume averaging the microscale balance and constitutive equations and assuming small deformations. Momentum transfer terms are expressed in terms of intrinsic and relative permeabilities assuming the validity of Darcy’s law. The coefficients of macroscopic constitutive relations are expressed in terms of measurable quantities in a novel way. The theory demonstrates the existence of three compressional and one rotational wave. The third compressional wave is associated with the pressure difference between the fluid phase and dependent on the slope of the capillary pressure-saturation relation.</jats:p>

Wave propagation in fractured porous media saturated by two immiscible fluids
Corapcioglu, MY; Tuncay, Kağan (1998-01-01)
A study of wave propagation in fractured porous media saturated by two immiscible fluids is presented, based on the double-porosity concept. The macroscopic constitutive relations and mass and momentum balance equations are obtained by volume averaging the microscale balance and constitutive equations, and assuming small deformations. Momentum transfer terms are expressed in terms of intrinsic and relative permeabilities assuming the validity of Darcy's law in fractured porous media. In the simplest case, t...
LONGITUDINAL ELASTIC-WAVE PROPAGATION AND ENERGY FLUX AT A DISCONTINUITY OF 2 DISSIMILAR SEMIINFINITE CIRCULAR RODS
Yıldırım, Raif Orhan (1994-10-01)
Elastic wave propagation through an area discontinuity of two dissimilar, bonded, semi-infinite circular rods is investigated analytically. In particular, the variations of the coefficients of stress reflection and transmission are determined in terms of the nondimensional cross sectional area and mechanical impedance parameters. The coefficients of energy flux reflection and transmission are also included. Then, the case is generalized to include a rigid mass attached at the discontinuity.
Transient waves in viscoelastic cylindrical layered media
Abu Alshaikh, I; Turhan, D; Mengi, Y (2002-09-01)
Propagation of two-dimensional transient waves in viscoelastic cylindrical layered media is investigated. The cylindrical multilayered medium consists of N different isotropic, homogeneous and linearly viscoelastic layers with two discrete relaxation times. A numerical technique which combines the complex Fourier series with the method of characteristics is employed to obtain the solutions. The numerical results are displayed in curves denoting the variations of the stress and displacement components with t...
Time-domain mapping of electromagnetic ray movement inside anisotropic spherical resonator
Biber, A; Golick, A; Tomak, Mehmet (2002-09-01)
This paper presents the analytical proof of "Time-Domain Mapping Method" for the spherical resonator made up of uniaxial crystal. In this way, the main types of caustics inside the spherical resonator made up of uniaxial crystal, which were investigated numerically before, are confirmed analytically. It is engraved that the problem of the ray flow inside the spherical resonator can be reduced to the problem of the ray flow inside metal cavity shaped as spheroid.
Absorption edge and optical constants of Tl2Ga2S3Se crystals from reflection and transmission, and ellipsometric measurements
Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2012-06-15)
The optical properties of Tl2Ga2S3Se layered crystalline semiconductors were investigated from transmission, reflection and ellipsometric measurements. The experimental results of the room temperature transmission and reflection measurements performed in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm showed the presence of both indirect and direct transitions in the band structure of the crystals with 2.38 and 2.62 eV band gap energies.
