Modes of deformation: (a) Flow: distributed deformation (b) Slip: faulting 2. Deformation Mechanisms: (a) Brittle deformation : (1) discrete deformation (it is a scale-dependent concept; it can be both slip or flow); deformation by breaking rocks (vague). (b) Ductile deformation : penetrative deformation (also a scale- dependent concept; it can be both slip or flow). (c) Plastic deformation : It refers to two things, (a) irreversible deformation after stress reaches the yield strength of material, and/or (b) crystal plastic deformation referring to deformation achieved by rearranging crystal lattice and expressed by dynamic recrystallization. (d) Cataclastic deformation : deformation achieved by frictional sliding and fracturing of rocks without changing the arrangement of crystal lattice.
