Title Integrated Model for the Acoustics of Sediments.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 11p
Personal Author N. P. Chotiros
Abstract The objectives are: (1) Integration of phenomenological components of the Biot plus grain contact physics models, to reconcile the physical constants and processes, with a view to reducing the number of input variables, (2) a comprehensive model for all sediment types and improved modeling of grain contact physics, and (3) the development and testing of sediment acoustic models through a series of at-sea experiments.
