With increasing confining pressure, carbonate rocks can undergo the brittle-ductile transition at room temperature. In order to examine the brittle-ductile transition, we performed constant strain rate triaxial deformation and stress-stepping creep experiments on Tavel limestone (porosity 14.7%) under various conditions. The evolution of elastic wave velocities were recorded during …

2007-11-2 · In more calcareous rocks and limestone, the early/distal biotite and pyroxene hornfels are replaced by garnet. Some of the rocks behaved in a brittle fashion following pyroxene formation such that veins and breccias are cemented by brown garnet. Close to intrusive contacts, limestone is completely replaced by massive garnet and magnetite.

Fold-related brittle structures and associated strain in a ...

Qualitative and quantitative observations for brittle structures in a limestone bed near the base of the Carmel Fm. were made in a wide range of bedding dip, curvature, and fold domains. Kinematic data was collected for 2942 structures (1865 veins, 746 stylolites, 314 faults) in 30 locations in order to calculate principal directions of strain.

Under these conditions the deformation was brittle, as indicated by extension veins and by foraminifera that show no measurable distortional strain. Nevertheless, the limestone is often tightly folded; the folding mechanism combined dissolution of limestone along stylolites subparallel to fold axes with deposition of sparry calcite in extension ...

The Brittle‐Ductile Transition in Porous Limestone ...

2021-4-9 · Understanding of the mechanics of the brittle-ductile transition (BDT) in porous limestone is significantly more challenging than for sandstone because of the lack of consistent acoustic emission activity in limestone, meaning that one must rely on alternative techniques.

Limestone

Carbonates (limestone and dolomite) share many of the characteristics of sandstone. Resistance to weathering —Because of their crystalline nature, carbonates are ridge formers that produce steep slopes and sharp forms, particularly in arid regions. Dolomite is more brittle than the more plastic limestone.

Brittle dolomite vs. limestone

2000-6-20 · The theory is that the dolomites are more brittle then the limestone, and tectonic events which deform (i.e., ductile behavior) the limestone will fracture the dolomite (i.e., brittle behavior), creating super-K intervals. I''ve tried a few of the available web sites for civil engineering, but haven''t found any good answers yet.
