Rock Physics Laboratory

Introduction to Rock Physics Laboratory:

The rock physics laboratory has been established at the Institute of Geophysics since 1376, and has been completed since the advent of newer equipment in this laboratory in 2002.

equipments in the rock lab:

  1. Ergotech apparatus and equipment (receivers, transmitters, converters, computers, printers) to measure the velocity of compressional and shear waves in rock samples under pressure from all sides (lateral and axial pressure) to 60 MPa.
  2. Filling device for rock samples.
  3. Device for setting the pressure of the fluid in the rock holes.
  4. Oscilloscope machine.
  5. Sonic viewer device  for measuring the velocity of compression and shear waves in atmospheric rock samples.
  6. Two caliber counters for measurement, manual and digital.
  7. Oven system for drying samples.
  8. Transformation for measuring rock mass with accuracy of 0.1 g.
  1.  Main Objectives: Measuring the velocity of compression waves ( Vp and shear ( Vs in rock.
  2. Elastic coefficients calculation including Poisson's ratio, Young's coefficient, shear modulus, and bulk modulus.
  3. Undermining the waves in the rocks.
  4. Estimating the saturation of rock samples.
