Unformatted text preview: Geology 3443 Spring 2006 Chapter 4 Deformation & Strain Sections 4.1 & 4.2 1. What are the differences between rigid body deformation and strain? 2. What are the differences between translation & rotation? 3. What are the differences between strain and dilation? 4. Give some geologic examples of rotation. How is a rotation vector defined? Not in book 5. What are transformation equations? What do they describe mathematically? Section 4.3 6. What is the difference between homogeneous and heterogeneous strain? 7. How can one always get homogeneous strain conceptually? 8. What is a material line? 9. What is a strain ellipse? Is it the result of homogeneous or heterogeneous strain? 10. How are the principal axes of the strain ellipse defined? How are X, Y & Z defined in terms of the principal axes? Section 4.4, 4.5 & 4.6 11. What is the difference between incremental and finite strain? Explain how incremental strains of two separate deformations can be different, but the resulting finite strain can be the same....
