Figure 3. With increasing stress, the rock undergoes: (1) elastic deformation, (2) plastic deformation, and (3) fracture.

In order to characterize the rock mass quality in the different portions of the Turtle Mountain anticline, the geological strength index (GSI) has been estimated. The GSI results show a decrease in rock mass quality approaching the fold hinge area due to higher fracture persistence and higher weathering. Fracturing and Faulting A body of rock that is brittle—either because it is cold or because of its composition, or both— is likely to break rather than fold when subjected to stress, and the result is fracturing or faulting.

In igneous rock: Fractures. These are straight or curving surfaces of rupture directly associated with the formation of a rock or later superimposed upon it. Primary fractures generally can be related to emplacement or to subsequent cooling of the host rock mass. The columnar jointing found in many Read More; rock formation and deformation.

Print Book & E-Book. ISBNDisplacement of the basement block induces deformation with resultant dilation and slip within the overlying fractured rock mass. The chapter discusses fluid pressure and fluid flow in the region quantitatively and examines the dynamic fluid–fault interactions.

For a natural disturbance, rock mechanics would apply to the deformation of rocks in a structural geology context, i.e., how the folds, faults, and fractures develop as stresses are applied to the rocks during orogenic and other geological processes. When rocks of the Earth's upper mantle are subject to large stresses, they either break or bend with the production of fractures or folds.

The kind of structure formed depends on the condition of the rocks and the rate at which deformation takes place. Folds. •Folds wave-like undulations in rock that form mainly fromcompressional stress that shortens and thickens the crust.

Fold Parts. •Limbs–the two planar sides of a fold. •Axis– imaginary line marking the crest or trough of each layer. •Axial plane– an imaginary plane of symmetry through the center of the fold. mechanical behavior of rock masses.

In most rock masses the discontinuities form planes of weakness or surfaces of separation, including foliation and bedding joints, joints, fractures, and zones of crushing or shearing. These discontinuities usually control the strength, deformation, and permeability of rock masses.

Most engineering. Stages of Deformation. When a rock is subjected to increasing stress it passes through 3 successive stages of deformation. Elastic Deformation-- wherein the strain is reversible. Ductile Deformation-- wherein the strain is irreversible.

Fracture -irreversible strain wherein the material breaks. When rock mass undergoes stress, it will preferentially fail along existing planes of weakness rather than develop new fractures. Must know the spacing, orientation, roughness of these weak links in order to accurately assess strength of the rock mass.

Many variations and it s impossible to know them all for any rock mass. Causes of Rock Deformation • Stress - pressure placed on rocks • Strain - deformation of the rock • Strength - rock resistance to deformation • Brittle deformation - the rocks break or fracture. Occurs at low temperatures and low pressures.

• Ductile deformation - the rocks bend or flow. Occurs at higher temperature and pressures. Rock material is the term used to describe the intact rock between discontinuities; it might be represented by a hand specimen or piece of drill core examined in the laboratory.

The rock mass is the total in-situ medium containing bedding planes, faults, joints, folds and other structural features. Rock masses are discontinuous and often have. How Rocks Deforms • Elastic deformation – The rock returns to original size and shape when stress removed.

• When the (strength) of a rock is surpassed, it either flows (ductile deformation) or fractures (brittle deformation). • Brittle behavior occurs in. Deformation, Mountain Building, and the Continents Introduction Dynamic forces within the Earth cause deformation. Deformation is a general term that in geology applies to any change in the shape or volume of rock layers, such as when they are folded or fractured.

Deformation occurs in building large mountain ranges at convergent boundaries thru. Schultz, R. A.,Relative scale and the strength and deformability of rock masses. Journal of Structural Geology – Segall, P.

and Pollard, D. D.,Nucleation and growth of strike slip faults in granite. deformation are recoverable. Like a rubber band, the rock will return to almost its original size and shape once the force is removed. Once the elastic limit or strength of a rock is surpassed, it either flows or fractures.

The factors that influence the strength of a rock and how it will deform include temperature, confining pressure, rock. and lineated rock called mylonite. Ductile shear zones generally record a non-coaxial deformation and may range from the grain scale to the scale of a few hundreds of kilometres in length and a few kilometres in width.

The strain gradients from mylonite to undeformed rock are criteria to distinguish large-scale shear zones from regional. Deformation of Rock Mount Everest is the highest peak on Earth at 29, feet above sea level. The rock at the top of the peak is a marine limestone, deposited on the sea floor about million years ago.

This is an amazing fact that begs the question - how did that rock get there. In this discussion we will try to answer that question. squeeze and fold rock masses. Elastic deformation Rock deformation in which the rock will return to nearly its original size and shape when the stress is removed.

[Irwin, ] acknowledge the importance of fractures in enhancing the deformation of rock masses, and thus controlling their elastic properties. The quantitative analysis of these expected consequences are well established for simple cases, as a single frictionless disk crack embedded in.

Where fracture density is at or above the threshold, there is a continuous fracture cluster (i.e. the largest cluster) throughout the fractured rock mass.

Fractal dimension, D f, is used to describe quantitatively the connectivity and compactness of the largest fracture cluster in the fractured rock mass and increases with fracture density.Folds Geologic folds are layers of rock that are curved or bent by ductile deformation. Folds are most commonly formed by compressional forces at depth, where hotter temperatures and higher confining pressures allow ductile deformation to occur.

Folds are described by the orientation of their axes, axial planes, and limbs.CHAPTER Folds, Faults and Rock Deformation. 1. Figure Rocks that were originally deposited in horizontal layers can subsequently deform by tectonic forces into folds and constitute the twists and bends in are planes of detachment resulting when rocks on either side of the displacement slip past one another.
