P-waves and S-wave reflection and refraction

  1. Dec 4, 2008 #1
    I am instructor for a company that does Oil well Accoustic logging.

    Basically we send an Acoustic pulse out and have a reciever 3' and 5' down the tool (vertically) as we log up and interpret the signal that is recieved back at the reciever.

    I was wondering if anyone can help me find any animations that show a mono-pole accoustic source wave that is reflected and refracted at various mediums. Basic acoustic wave propogation. I see alot information out there dealing with seismics but it doesnt deal with the reciever being basically at the same spot as the transmitter

    the mediums we specifically deal with are steel to cement and cement to various geological formations.

    thanks for any help you guys might be able to give me
