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.

    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.
