API TR 10TR7
Mechanical Behavior of Cement
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
The mechanical testing described in this document will provide the necessary cement property data for use in cement sheath integrity simulations. The compressive strength tests and nondestructive sonic determination of compressive strength of cement defined in API 10B-2 do not provide suitable data for cement sheath integrity simulations. The methods of API 10B-2 provide information on the strength of cement to ensure that the cement is suitable for general well construction applications and to determine when sufficient strength is developed to allow well operations to continue.
