A granular flow theory for the deformation of partially molten rock
A model is developed for deformation of partially molten rock in which the primary mechanism is the relative movement of grains and the strain rate is controlled by the rate at which the interferences to this movement are accommodated by local melting. It is concluded that, in multicomponent rocks with moderate melt fractions where this model is applicable, the strain rate is generally determined by the rate of diffusion of the grain components in the melt, with linear dependence on deviatoric...[Show more]
