Rock Properties and Mechanics

Identify rock mechanical properties from core, cuttings and electrical logs. Use analysis to address issues related to fractures, subsurface pressures, subsidence and compaction. Illustrate an understanding of rock properties that effect seismic response. Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to: define basic rock mechanical properties, describe how they are measured, understand the differences between laboratory measurements and in-situ properties, predict formation subsurface pressure environment and principal stress directions, and define properties that effect seismic response and how these properties relate to AVO effect.
