Examples of such tests include concrete chloride migration, NDT methods and several pile tests including low strain integrity, cross-hole sonic logging, and high-strain dynamic pile testing.
In this paper, the test-bench for sonic logging tool is proposed and designed to realize automatic calibration and testing of the sonic logging tool.
In this article, the test-bench for sonic logging tool is also designed based on the C/S architecture.
The electronic receiving cabin is a critical as well as a widely used module in sonic logging tool, with its performance significantly affects the accuracy of signal acquisition.
Sonic logging is frequently used in down-hole oil and mineral exploration to measure the porosity of the materials surrounding the well hole.
The sensors used in sonic logging modules and downhole operations typically operate at low frequencies due to the fact that lower frequency operation tends to penetrate dense materials more effectively.
