(57) Devices and methods for calibrating acoustic cement evaluation data using an acoustic calibration device installed behind a casing in a wellbore are provided. Such an acoustic calibration apparatus may be installed in contact with the outer diameter of a casing and cemented in place with cement in a wellbore. The acoustic calibration apparatus may include a first material different from that of the casing that has first known acoustic properties (e.g., simulating a solid) and a second material different from that of the casing and the cement that has second known acoustic properties (e.g., simulating a liquid or gas). Acoustic measurements obtained by an acoustic logging tool in the wellbore may be calibrated based on the known acoustic properties of the acoustic calibration apparatus.
