Engineering: Dislocation And Deformation Analysis
225 words 1 page

Consider edge dislocations of opposite sign and having slip planes that are separated by several atomic distances. Briefly describe the defect that results when these two dislocations become aligned with each other. When the two edge dislocations become aligned, a planar region of vacancies will exist between the dislocations. 7. 12 Consider a metal single […]

Introduction To Liquid Crystals Engineering
5455 words 11 pages

The survey of liquid crystals began in 1888 when an Austrian phytologist named Friedrich Reinitzer observed that a stuff known as cholesteryl benzoate had two distinguishable runing points. In his experiments, Reinitzer increased the temperature of a solid sample and watched the crystal alteration into a brumous liquid. As he increased the temperature further, the […]

Sediment Inputs to Subduction Zones: Why Lithostratigraphy and Clay Mineralogy Matter
295 words 1 page

The article “Sediment Inputs to Subduction Zones: Why Lithostratigraphy and Clay Mineralogy Matter” by M. B. Underwood discusses lithostratigraphy architecture in terms of tectonic behavior and material properties. The thesis of the paper is that clay-size particles do affect sediment’s coefficient of permeability and friction. To prove his position the author conducts Seismogenic Zone Experiment […]

Bowen’s Reaction Series
305 words 1 page

Mineral occurrence in igneous rock is most simply explained by Bowen’s reaction series. Norman Levi Bowen discovered the series of reactions while studying the process of crystallizing minerals in Washington, D. C. in 1928. In order to best express his findings to his scientific brethren, Bowen created a visual display based on when and under […]

K-Feldspar
324 words 1 page

K-Feldspar, also known as Potassium Feldspar or orthoclase, is the most common rock-forming mineral. It covers up about 60% of the Earth’s crust (Feldspar). Feldspar crystalizes from magma which is found in both extrusive and intrusive igneous rocks as well as metamorphic rocks (wisconsingeologicalsurvey. org). They form at medium to high temperature and at certain […]
