The strength and mechanical behaviour of quartz slip interfaces: an experimental investigation

Hayward, Kathryn Suzanne


An experimental study has been undertaken to explore the strength, mechanical behaviour and microstructural evolution of bare interfaces in quartz sandstone during slip. These experiments were designed to simulate fault processes with increasing depth in the continental crust. Two main aspects have been explored: (1) the effect of temperature and confining pressure on the behaviour and stability of favourably-oriented faults, and (2) the influence of...[Show more]
