Abstract

The attenuation of ultrasonic stress waves in samples of gabbroic rock subjected to shock loading in the 11 Gpa range were studied. We determined the damage deficits, D_p, and attenuation coefficients, α_p, for the samples with different damage deficits under dynamic strains of 2×10^(−7) and at frequencies around 2 MHz using ultrasonic pulse-echo method. A fit to the data yields the P-wave spatial attenuation coefficient versus damage deficit: α_p=40.9D_p−30.5D^2_p (db/cm). Basing on the O’Connell-Budiansky theory, the relation between attenuation coefficient and crack density is given. The predictions of α_p from Walsh’s theory agrees well with the experiment results for the samples with different damage deficits.
