Abstract

We present an efficient and accurate numerical algorithm for the simulation of borehole seismic experiments. The basis of the approach is a heterogeneous spectral element method implemented on multi-GPU applied to elastic wave equation. The approach was designed to simulate wave propagation in 3D arbitrary anisotropic elastic media with attenuation for a constant via standard linear solid using the method. Due to the use of an unstructured grid, the spectral element algorithm enables handling geological models of big complexity.
