STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS
Generally involves three successive steps:
1. Descriptive Analysis: Physical and geometrical
description of rock structures (e.g. folds, faults,
joints, crenulations etc).
2. Kinematic Analysis: Evaluation of displacement &
change in shape, orientation and size that rocks
undergo as a result of deformation.
3. Dynamic Analysis: Reconstruct forces and stresses
which result in rock deformation and failure.

Behaviour of Rocks to Stress & Strain

Stress - a force per unit


area at a particular point.
Strain - the change in
size (volume) or shape, or
both, while an object is
undergoing stress.

Behaviour of rocks with increasing stress and strain.


• Elastic behaviour occurs along the straight line portions (blue)
• At stresses greater than the elastic limit (red points) the rock will
either deform as a ductile material or break, as shown in the
deformed rock cylinders.
Definitions
Deformation – response of rock body to applied stress.
 Rigid body deformation
 Non-rigid body deformation (strain)

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 4


Rigid Body Deformation
Rock body displace with no change in shape or volume,
e.g. translation and rotation.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 5


Rigid Body Deformation
Displacement of fault blocks along fault plane or fault
slip with no deformation of block also consider as rigid.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 6


Non-rigid Body Deformation
(Strain)
Strain – change in size and shape body in response to
an applied forces
 Dilation – change in volume or area.
 Distortion – change in shape

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 7


Volumetric Strain
 Strain may involve change in volume, as well as
distortion.
 Volume loss is mainly due to dissolution (chemical
process) or compaction (mechanical).

Homogeneous Strain

All points within deforming body undergo same


change in shape and volume.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 10


Homogeneous Strain -
 principle
Straight lines remain straight after deformation
 Parallel lines remain parallel after deformation
 Circles become ellipses

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 11


Material Lines (Reference
 lines)
In homogeneously strained body there are two material lines
that do not rotate relative to each other.
 Remain perpendicular before and after strain
 Length of material lines change

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 12


Material Lines
Lines that contain recognizable features, e.g. grains, fossil,
crystals, mineral alignment

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 13


Strain Ellipse
Material lines that do not rotate define the axes of the strained
ellipse.
 An ellipse defining a principle directions of strain (stretch)
 Lengths of strained axes define the magnitude of strain.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 14


Strain Ellipsoid
 In 3D, we have three perpendicular material lines.
 Axes indicate degree of stress relative to three principle
stress directions, S1, S2 and S3

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 15


Fossil: Oncolite

Original spherical oncolites become ellipsoidal


when subjected to homogenous strain.
 What can learn by measuring S1 and S2?

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 16


Strain Ellipses
 Instantaneous strain ellipse shows single increment of
deformation within strain continuum
 A snapshot of strain condition at given instant.
 Finite strain ellipse shows final or total strain.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 17


Heterogeneous Strain
Changes in size and shape varies across deformed body.
 Parallel line don’t remain parallel
 Straight line don’t remain straight

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 18


Heterogeneous strain

Ptygmatic fold

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 19


Heterogeneous strain
Most deformation in nature is heterogeneous, e.g. folding no
line remain parallel or straight.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 20


QAB1034 Mineralogy & Petrography 21
Analysis of Strain
Analysis of heterogeneous strain is a problematic one.
 Difficult to deal with mathematically
 Subdivided into regions which can treated as ‘locally’
homogeneous

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 22


1. Simple Shear
Shearing of fault blocks past one another
 Lines within body undergo uniform rotation
 Lines parallel to shear direction remains parallel

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 23


Simple Shear
Sinistral (left-handed) shear in ductile shear zone.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 24


2. Pure Shear
Uniform stretching of the Earth crust at rift zone (divergent)
 Uniform extension and contraction
 Lines parallel to & perpendicular to principle direction of
stress don’t rotate.

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 25


Pure Shear - Boudins

Boudinage – uniform extension

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 26


Pure Shear – Stretched
pebbles

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 27


Measurement of Strain
Measure in line length and orientation
 Linear features that have been deformed, e.g. stretched fossil
 Axes of elliptical markers that were circular prior to deformation

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 28


Strain Marker
Stretched pebble conglomerate: Originally spheroidal pebbles
stretched into elongate ellipsoids

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 29


Strain Marker
Crinoid Ossicles – Cylindrical ossicles becomes elliptical
with applied stress

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 30


Strain Marker
Oncolites – carbonate concretions which is deposited by algae,
with concentric spherical nature become ellipsoid; quite similar
to ooliths

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 31


Strain Marker
Bivalve shells have natural right angle symmetry
 Measure angle between hinge and axis of symmetry

QAB 1053 Structural Geology 32


CONCLUSION
 Rigid and non rigid deformations are solely
controlled by material behaviour.
 Heterogeneous strains are the most prominent
compared to homogenous in geology.
 Simple and true shear can be recognised from the
strained materials.
 Strain markers are generally marked by distorted
fossils and fragments.
 Kinematic analysis is an important key on
recognising stress-strain relationship.
