ANALYSIS OF MICROSTRUCTURES: APPLICATION TO RESEARCH INTO DEFORMATION OF ROCK AND FORECAST OF ITS MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

L'ANALYSE DES MICROSTRUCTURES : APPLICATION A LA RECHERCHE DES CONDITIONS DE DEFORMATION DES ROCHES ET A LA PREVISION DE LEURS PROPRIETES MECANIQUES

THE OBJECT OF THE INVESTIGATION DESCRIBED IS AN ATTEMPT AT ESTABLISHING A CORRELATION BETWEEN THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF ROCK AND ITS MICROSTRUCTURE, BASED ON PETROGRAPHY, CRYSTALLOGRAPHY AND SOLIDS PHYSICS. THE FIRST PART DEALS WITH CRYSTAL, WHOSE STRUCTURE IS STUDIED TAKING ACCOUNT OF DEFORMATION. THE SECOND PART CONCERNING CRYSTAL AGGREGATES DISCUSSES SUCCESSIVELY THE CASE OF APPROXIMATELY ISOTROPIC, MONO-MINERAL AND MULTI-MINERAL ROCKS AND ROCKS WITH AN ANISOTROPIC TEXTURE. FINALLY SOME INDICATIONS ARE GIVEN ON THE PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT ROLE OF TWO EXTERNAL FACTORS: TEMPERATURE AND WATER.
