Mechanical stratigraphy and sonic log relationships using the Proceq Bambino in the Niobrara Formation, Denver Basin
MetadataShow full item record
The Proceq Bambino is a hand-held rebound hammer that can measure brittleness through non-destructive testing and increase the resolution, accuracy, and confidence in geomechanical estimations. The Bambino gives readings in Leeb Hardness (HLD). HLD measurements are defined as the ratio of rebound velocity to impact velocity. Preliminary data was taken from the Niobrara Formation in a Denver Basin core to demonstrate the repeatability, precision, and non-destructiveness of the Bambino. A relationship between HLD values and geomechanical properties such as unconfined compressive strength, Young's ...
