Energy release model of compaction band propagation

  title={Energy release model of compaction band propagation},
  author={John W. Rudnicki},
[1] The elastic strain energy released per unit advance of a compaction band in an infinite layer of thickness h is used to identify and assess quantities relevant to propagation of isolated compaction bands observed in outcrop. If the elastic moduli of the band and the surrounding host material are similar and the band is much thinner than the layer, the energy released is simply s+xh p where s+ is the compressive stress far ahead of the band edge, xh is the thickness of the band and p is the… CONTINUE READING
