Fig. 3

Compressional and shear wave velocities in a dry rock sample AJG50 are shown as a function of confining pressure. The letter beside a compressional wave velocity represents the propagation direction. The first letter beside a shear wave velocity is the oscillation direction and the second letter the propagation direction. Z-direction is parallel to the axis of the cylindrical sample. X- and Y-directions are perpendicular to Z-direction and mutually orthogonal
