The Induced Polarization (IP) methods is an extension of resistivity method by adding ability of the ground in storing electrical charge. One of the measurement technique is done in time domain, hereinafter referred to as Time Domain Induced Polarization (TDIP). TDIP responses measured on the surface are affected by the physical properties of the subsurface. Research in TDIP response modeling studies is performed to obtain a quantitative relationship between response to metallic mineral content

The forward modeling produces a curve that connects TDIP response to the subsurface parameters and an array. The laboratory-scale physical model is performed on the sand-box size (200x100x70) cm3 by varying iron-ore content in a sphere target. TDIP response measurements on physical models is done using Dipole-dipole and Wenner configuration. The relationship between the TDIP response and metal mineral content is obtained by comparing the results of measurements on physical modeling and forward modelling. There is good appropriatement between the theoretical curves and measuring results of the physical modelling. The greater of iron-ore content on the target, increasing in the TDIP response.
