Geologic Fracture Mechanics (PDF) delivers a consistent treatment of all common geologic structural discontinuities. It searches the formation, growth, and interpretation of fractures and deformation bands, from the theoretical, field, and lab-based perspectives, linking the gap between a general textbook treatment and the more progressive research literature. It enables the reader to acquire basic tools to interpret discontinuity origins, geometries, patterns, and consequences using many of the contemporary and leading concepts known to specialists in the field. Problem sets are given at the end of each chapter, and worked examples are included within every chapter to show topics and enable self-study. With all common geologic structures including joints, faults, stylolites, hydrofracture, and deformation bands being discussed from a fresh perspective, it will be a handy reference for advanced students, researchers, and industry practitioners interested in structural geology, rock mechanics, planetary geology, neotectonics and reservoir geomechanics.
