The Mohr stress circle: Determining stress and stress states part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
The goal of this exercise is to reinforce concepts discussed in lecture on the topic of stress and give students a hands on intuition of the relationships between the principal stresses, the normal and shear ...
Structure contours, vertical cross-sections, three-point problems and applications part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
This exercise makes use of geologic maps, structure contour and cross-section problems, and three-point calculations to help students conceptualize three-dimensional spatial relationships of geologic structures, ...
Structural Geology part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Courses
The prime purpose of this course is to improve your understanding of the deformation of the Earth's lithosphere, which is the focus of the study of structural geology. In my view, a first course in structural ...
