LinAgren Abstract Time-Dependent Crack Growth in Quartz and its application to the Creep of Rocks Sciences May 3, 1971 in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The time-dependent growth of an axial crack in single crystal quartz tested in uniaxial compression with a constant load was studied as a function of temperature, stress and partial pressure of water. The time-dependent growth was found to obey an equation of the form C-Ce : =Atn where C is crack… CONTINUE READING
