The PS-8R High Resolution Seismic System for Boreholeswpe1E.jpg (14818 bytes)

Case History

The PS8R consists of a source and an 8-transducer receiver probe, which can be placed in the same or in different holes.The PS-8R can be used for reflection and tomographic studies. Both dry and water-filled holes, of arbitrary inclinations, can be used. The units clamp hydraulically to holes with diameters of 56-100 mm.
The source generates time-coded pulse sequences, which are summed to produce high dynamic broad band records.

The PS-8R is intended for investigations of mine pillars, bridge piles and tunnel walls. The PS-8R is capable of imaging single fractures at a distance of 10-20m, by emitting and recording frequencies of up to 60 kHz.
