Abstract: We designed a new downhole electrokinetic logging tool based on numericalsimulations and petrophysical experiments. Acoustic and electric receivers cannot be arrangedat the same depth, and the proposed composite electrokinetic logging tool offers a solutionto this problem. The sound field characteristics of the detectors were tested in a water tank inthe laboratory. Then, we calculated the sound pressure of the radiated acoustic field and thetransmitting voltage response of the transmitting transducers; in addition, we analyzed thedirectivity and application of the acoustic transmitting probe based on linear phased array.The results suggest that the sound pressure generated at 1500 mm spacing reaches up to 47.2k Pa and decreases with increasing acoustic source frequency. When the excitation signalsdelay time of adjacent acoustic transmitting subarrays increases, the radiation beam of themain lobe is deflected and its energy gradually increases, which presumably enhances theacoustoelectric conversion efficiency.
