Summary:We developed a method to predict shear-wave velocity in shale sandstone from conventional log and experimental data using Gassmann's equations and the Xu-White model. This method not only considers the effects of a rock matrix and fluid inclusions, but also the porosity and pore shapes. The influence of errors in the input parameters on the precision of predicting S-wave velocities is analyzed. Numerical experiments show that the variable aspect ratio method provides an important improvement in applying the Xu-White model for sand-clay mixtures as compared to the fixed aspect ratio assumption. This method has also shown a significant improvement in predicting velocities over the conventional Xu-White model.
