Borehole acoustic source

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7562740.

The present invention discloses an acoustic borehole source and method of using the source for generating elastic waves through an earth formation that may be used for logging or permanent installations. The acoustic source is comprised of a first motorized reaction mass and at least two pads, each pad connected to the sonde and the motorized reaction mass using pushing rods. In an alternate embodiment, the source has a first and second motorized reaction mass and at least two pads. The motorized reaction masses may be activated to allow the pads to move at an angle .alpha. relative to the axis of the sonde. In a third embodiment, the acoustic borehole source includes additional pairs of motorized reaction masses so that pads may be independently activated.
