A Secondary Field Based hpFinite Element Method for the Simulation of Magnetotelluric Measurements
(20151231)In some geophysical problems, it is sometimes possible to divide the subsurface resistivity distribution as a one dimensional (1D) contribution plus some two dimensional (2D) inhomogeneities. Assuming this scenario, we ... 
Semianalytical response of acoustic logging measurements in frequency domain
(20151231)This work proposes a semianalytical method for simulation of the acoustic response of multipole eccentered sources in a fluidfilled borehole. Assuming a geometry that is invariant with respect to the azimuthal and vertical ... 
Sensitivity Analysis for the Appraisal of Hydrofractures in Horizontal Wells with Borehole Resistivity Measurements
