Accurate simulation of seismic wave propagation in complex geological structures is of particular interest today. However, conventional methods fail to simulate realistic wavefields due to the presence of shadow zones, head waves, diffractions and edge effects. Numerous researches have been done to improve seismic modeling methods for complex geological environment and modern acquisition surveys. Different methods have been developed and are typically tested on synthetic configurations against "validated" methods. This approach has its limitations as it can be difficult to determine the method that gives the best approximation of the "real" solution. An original approach for seismics is to compare the synthetic data with the data obtained in laboratory for a well-described configuration. In this presentation we will present the comparisons of laboratory data obtained during zero-offset experiments in a water-tank and synthetic data computed by means of the Tip-Wave Superposition Method.
