The acoustic isolator between the drilling bit and the acoustic piezoelectric transducer can attenuate the drilling noise transmitted through the drill collar to avoid interference with the transmission of acoustic signals while drilling, and also can be used to weaken the influence of downlink acoustic signal with the uplink channel produced by the transducer. This paper improves the characteristic analysis of tapered acoustic transmission model, and the size and structure of the acoustic isolator has been designed which has the characteristic frequencies of 700~800Hz and 1200~1300Hz.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
