Dispersion effect of velocities on the evaluation of material elasticity
ABSTRACT The author employs the Kjartansson absorption model to prove that intrinsic dispersion of seismic wave velocities in absorbing
media is a basic factor responsible for the differences between elastic rock parameters measured dynamically and statically.
Dispersion of Young’s modulus predicted by this model for a frequency range from millihertz to tens of kilohertz matches well
the experimental data obtained for polyvinyl chloride plastic used as a test material in the study case.
