This book about rock stress is suitable for students in geosciences and engineering, who need to broaden their horizon about the Stress Field of the Earths Crust. The book covers the topic in a way such that geoscience students will be able to grasp the Cauchy Stress Principle without fear of matrix transformations in an exercise.
Stress Field of the Earth's Crust - Arno Zang, Ove Stephansson - Bok () | Bokus
Students interested in math, physics and engineering will learn to cement a strain gauge on a rock specimen, measure residual strains by multiple overcoring and evaluate the results. Leading edge technology in determining stress Kaiser Effect is presented together with classical methods Hydraulic Fracturing. In addition, borehole techniques Breakouts and drillcore techniques Anelastic Strain Recovery are illustrated. With respect to stress data, we choose locations of global interest where integrated stress determination strategies have been applied.
Stress compilations viewed by the World Stress Map project are presented and interpreted in terms of plate tectonics. The purpose of this book is twofold.
Pressure build-up and stress variations within the Earth’s crust in the light of analogue models
First, to report on the current field of knowledge in rock stress to students at an introduction level and second, to inform readers about stress measurements in underground excavations of public interest and about global rock stress in plate tectonic settings. This textbook consists of three main chapters accompanied by a DVD containing twelve video lectures presenting the same material in a self-instructed way. Exercises, laboratory testing and colour animations are included to emphasize the role of stress in various fields of solid earth sciences.
I especially like the way that many of the diagrams have such iconic simplicity so that the extranneous detail has been removed - leaving only the message that the diagram is transmitting. I found the Note boxes that summarize important results to be particularly welcome. In conclusion, this book is undoubtedly focused on stress field of the Earth crust. New data on the tectonic stress field features is obtained for the study region: the orientation of the principal stress axes, distribution of Lode — Nadai coefficient stress ratio and effective confining pressure.
The geodynamic zoning of the study region is carried out. New results on the regional modern tectonic stress field within the east coast of Honshu Island, Japan are obtained.

Practical significance. The results of the research can be the basis for seismic zoning maps of tectonically active areas of the earth's crust, for a more detailed study and prediction of seismicity features in the study region in time and space. Skip to main content.
