Rheology of Rocks

  title={Rheology of Rocks},
  author={Brian Kenneth Evans and David L Kohlstedt},
1.1. Strategy and Techniques For a rock of given mineralogy and microstructure, the variables important in determining strength are pressure, temperature, strain, strain history, strain rate, pore fluid pressure, grain size, fugacities of water and other volatiles, and chemical activities of the mineral components. Although earth scientists may now duplicate pressures and temperatures appropriate to the mantle and core in modern high pressure apparatus, they still cannot study mechanical… CONTINUE READING
