This Reference Manual and Short Course cover topics needed to calculate dynamic elastic rock properties, such as shear modulus, Poisson’s ratio, Young’s modulus, brittleness, overburden stress, pore pressure, and closure stress from modern well logs. Integration and calibration to static and dynamic lab data, implications for hydraulic fracture design, and log editing are discussed.

QUICK FACTS:
RF-05: 95 pages, 5 chapters, 3 appendices, table of contents, computer-ready math, access to all META/LOG spreadsheet software.

RF-05S: as above PLUS 2 narrated video slideshows.

RECOMMENDED FOR: all geoscientists, geotechs, engineers, managers and CEO's.
