A laboratory study of the transmission of signals through solid material with possible application to seismic communication
"The problem of transmitting acoustic signals through solid material channels is investigated using piezoelectric transducers for generation and detection of the signals. Laboratory experiments are performed in which a solid material channel is modeled by a block of Berea sandstone. The magnitude of the frequency response for the sandstone and transducer combination is obtained over the frequency range of approximately 0 Hz to 500 kHz. Various electrical waveforms are utilized as driving sources for the transmitting transducer. It is found that the best received waveform is obtained when a gated sinewave whose frequency is approximately equal to the resonant frequency of the transducer is used as the driving source. Based on the experimental results obtained, a communication system is proposed in which seismic noise is assumed to be negligible in the frequency range of interest"--Abstract, page ii.
