The effect of (1) compressive stress and (2) pore fluid properties on elastic properties of unconsolidated sand reservoirs was determined by laboratory velocity and pore volume measurements on two specimens. The latter consisted of a naturally occurring very fine‐grained sand and glass beads, each with a porosity of approximately 38 percent. Constituent compressibilities and densities of the two reservoir specimens are similar; thus, differences in measured elastic properties likely are attributable to differences in grain shape and pore size.
