A New Imaging Logging Technology Based on Magnetoacoustic Tomography with Magnetic Induction


Article Preview

Imaging logging is a new technique which has been developing in recent years, its’ silo facilities could collect large information with high resolution, and the measurement result is usually presented in graphics after processed. This paper presents a new imaging logging technique based on magnetic-acoustic Tomography with Magnetic Induction(MAT-MI), introduces its’ logging principle, gives detailed experimental system, makes a simple copper coil experiment and verifies the feasibility of the technique. These studies will lay a foundation for practical application of new imaging logging technology.
