Rapid, non-destructive, core-based strength logs using Brinell Hardness
and Ultrasonic Velocity can rapidly identify the relative rock strength
in conventional cores over large depth intervals. This measurement provides a "quick-look" at geomechanical properties.
Acoustic velocity measurements on core can provide high resolution logs of wave velocities, unconfined compressive
strength, and dynamic Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio versus depth.
