Activities (2)

Measuring Strain part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
This activity utilizes randomly oriented strain markers created in Illustrator to estimate strain by measuring angular strain and lengths of lines, calculating shear strain, defining and orienting the principal strain axes, calculating stretching, and creating a Mohr Strain diagram using measurements as well as the strain equations.

Extra Credit Problem Set part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
This problem set was assigned at the end of the year as a way for the students to get some extra credit and to help them study for the final exam. The problem set has 3 parts: 1) Strain: finding S1 and S3, measuring angular shear, and determining coaxial vs. noncoaxial deformation, 2) Calculating surface stresses on an inclined surface, and 3) Mohr stress circles.

Course

Structural Geology part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Courses
This is a required course for the Geology majors, and it covers the basics of structural geology including stress, strain, and deformation, and identifying structures. We use the text "Structural Geology of Rocks and Regions" by George Davis, Stephen Reynolds, and Charles Kluth.
