Abstract:

The study of the influence of water saturation in magmatic rock on changes in elastic properties under conditions of high thermodynamic parameters is connected with explaining the factors affecting changes in the speed of elastic waves in the plutonic zones of the earths crust. The authors conducted investigations to clarify the features of the changes in the velocity of ultrasound at atmosphere pressure and over a range of confined pressures in samples of several types of magmatic rock of the Ukrainian layer with the natural moisture content.
