Rock Physics provides the connections between elastic properties measured at the surface of the earth, within the borehole environment or in the laboratory with the intrinsic properties of rocks, such as mineralogy, porosity, pore shapes, pore fluids, pore pressures, permeability, viscosity, stresses and overall architecture such as laminations and fractures. Rock Physics provides the understanding and theoretical tools required to optimize all imaging and characterization solutions based on elastic data.
The present site is a collection of resources for rock physicists and those who use the results of rock physics in their work.

Rock Physics Influencers
I was born in the North West of England, and obtained a B.A. in Physics from Lancaster University in 1973. I then moved to Imperial College, London, where I received a D.I.C. (Diploma of Imperial College) in Mathematical Physics and a Ph.D. in Physics in 1976. The title of my thesis was “Correlation effects in the transition metals ... Read more

Ultrasonically-Enhanced static apparatus review
HelloI am wondering if there is any recent review on designs of oedometer/triaxial apparatuses for rock incorporating ultrasonic transducersRegards

Transversely isotropic acoustics: Does anyone know a reason for difference between Vsv(90) and Vs(0)
The usual case is that Vsv(90) equals Vs measured in the bedding-normal direction, but more than once it was found to be different. Couldn't find a satisfactory treatment. Have any Ideas?

Thomson's parameters for anisotropy
In case if we do not have core plugs and also unable to find Thomson's parameters during seismic data processing, how can we calculate these ones (eta, epsilon etc.) from sonic log? Please share your views, literature and numerical formulas. Thanks

What are unresolved issues in rock physics?
At the end
of the 3IWRP workshop in Perth, Australia, one of the popular topics of
discussion was “What do you think are unresolved issues in rock physics?” I would like to
continue and extend the discussion to a wider audience who did not attend the
workshop. Please share your thoughts.
