Rock deformation tests to large shear strains in torsion

Paterson, Mervyn; Olgaard, D


Experiments performed to high strains in simple shear are necessary to resolve many important problems in rock deformation, including the simulation of non-coaxial deformation, the exploration of the influence of strain on rheology, and the development of mineral segregation, dynamic recrystallisation, and other aspects of microstructure. Using a new torsion system we are able to simulate both the high strains and the simple shear style commonly observed in naturally deformed rocks, and to make...[Show more]
