7 VISCOUS BEHAVIOR Continuous flow at constant stress Linear, or Newtonian, viscous behavior is expressed as: –  = (  *t)/visc, where visc = viscosity Typical viscosities for rocks are between to Poise. 1 Poise = 1 Pa*sec Viscous flow occurs in the solid earth below melting temperatures Rate is extremely slow and requires 10 6 yrs or more Typical strain rates,  /t = /sec to /sec

14 Poisson’s Ratio Poisson’s Ratio, =  transverse /  longitudinal In uniaxial tension, an incompressible material should have a = 0.5 Most rocks have values of 0.25 – 0.35

15 FRACTURES AND FAULTS

16 STRENGTH and DUCTILITY Strength= max stress before failure Ductility = max strain before failure

17 FRACTURES IN ROCKS In uniaxial compression only extension fractures form. They always form parallel to the maximum compressive stress (mcs) and perpendicular to the least compressive stress ( which may also be a tensile stress)

18 Shear fractures form in biaxial and triaxial cases Shear fractures form at acute angles to the mcs The extension fractures form the acute bisector Shear fractures dominate over extension fractures in terms of frequency Faults are big shear fractures (slip amounts > 1 m)

19 BRITTLE BEHAVIOR Notice how tiny cracks form early on before the visible crack occurs

20 When there is only one stress direction, only extension fractures form In biaxial and triaxial cases, shear fractures dominate

21 FAULTS (LARGE-SCALE SHEAR FRACTURES) FORM MAINLY AT PLATE BOUNDARIES
