Enhanced source hardware and tank for physical modelling

Joe Wong, Kevin L. Bertram, Hongliang Zhang, Kevin W. Hall, Kristopher A. Innanen

Enhancements made to the University of Calgary Seismic Physical Modeling System include: (1) hardware and software additions that produce arbitrary source waveforms for driving piezoelectric transducers; (2) an improved, larger water tank to support simulations of marine seismic surveys; and (3) data acquisition modules that expand the number of receiver channels to 24; and. This report describes items (1) and (2) of these enhancements in detail. A companion report by Bertram and Wong (2020) discusses (3).
