Transient creep and strain energy dissipation: An experimental perspective

Faul, Ulrich; Jackson, Ian


Energy dissipation due to intrinsic attenuation occurs at elevated temperatures in rocks as a result of a range of processes. Examples where small-strain, transient deformation occurs are seismic waves, tidal deformation, and at longer timescales post-glacial rebound and far-field post-seismic deformation. Experiments at mantle temperatures and seismic frequencies show that grain boundary sliding is a key process that results in a broad absorption band, as indicated by seismic observations....[Show more]
