Lab 8 - Geologic Structures 1. Do-it-yourself geologic modeling. Look around your house and find something that will behave in a plastic manner (Play- doh, clay, silly putty etc.) DO NOT USE A WATER BOTTLE. In geology, we use plastic to describe something that will change shape when a stress is applied and retains the shape after the stress is removed. a. What are you using that is plastic? How is it different from something that is brittle? b. Apply a compressive stress (i.e. push the two ends towards each other) to your plastic stuff? Describe how it changes shape. c. Apply an extensional stress (i.e. pull the two ends apart) to your plastic stuff? Describe how it changes shape. d. Apply a shear stress (i.e. push the two sides in opposite directions) to your plastic stuff? Describe how it changes shape.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
