About this book

The 30th International Geological Congress was held in Beijing, China in August 1997. Leading scientists convened to present their findings and views to the international geological research community. Volume 14 of 26 focuses on structural geology and geomechanics. All articles in the proceedings have been refereed and keynote papers have been included in Volume 1. These proceedings aim to present a view of contemporary geology and should be of interest to researchers in the geological sciences.


Part 1 Mechanism of deformation: netlike and homogeneous plastic flows in the crust and mantle and the flow law, Sheng-Zu Wang; rheology of ancient middle-lower continental crust in the Winling Orogenic Belt, central China, Shutian Suo and Zhengqiu Zhong; fluidization and rapid injection of crushed fine-grained materials in fault zones during episodes of seismic faulting, Aiming Lin; dynamic fault motion under variable normal stress condition with rate and state dependent friction, Changrong He and Shengli Ma; the tectonic significance of active middle crust, Zhu-en Yang et al; study on the mylonite of the shallow structure level in southeastern China, Y. Sun et al. Part 2 Tectonophysical simulation and digital modelling: simulation of some geological structures, Zuoxun Zeng et al; mechanical behaviour of halite and calcite shear zones from brittle to fully-plastic deformation and a revised fault model, E. Kawamoto and T. Shimamoto; the effect of anisotropy on the shape of fault-bend folds, Labao Lan and P. Hudleston. Part 3 Extensional tectonics: mechanisms of extension and their influence on basin geometry - the St. George's Channel Basin, Offshore UK, M.J. Welch; Mesozoic geothermal anomaly in Western Hills of Beijing and origin of Fangshan metamorphic core complex, Honglin Song and Ning Zhu; the Xiaoqinling detachment fault and metamorphic core complex of China - structure, kinematics, strain and evolution, Jinjiang Zhang et al; ductile extension and uplift of granulites in the Datong-Huaian area, North China, J.S. Zhang et al. Part 4 Strike-slip and transpression tectonics: diachronous uplift along the Ailao Shan-Red River left-lateral strike-slip shear zone in the Miocene and its tectonic implication, Yunnan, China, Weiji Chen et al; a new model deduced from Kalpin transpression tectonics and its implications to the Tarim Basin, Huafu Lu et al; three-dimensional models of transpressional structures in China coal mine, Guiliang Wang et al; displacement, timing and tectonic model of the Tan-Lu fault zone, Guang Zhu and Jiawei Xu; evolution of Tan-Lu strike-slip fault system and its geological implications, Xiaofeng Wang et al. Part 5 Contractional tectonics: evidence for growth fault-bend folds in the Tarim Basin and its implications for fault-slip rates in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic, Huafu Lu et al; determination of contractional fault systems in the southern margin of the Ordos basin, China, by multisource data processing, Yongjie Tan and J.L. van Genderen. Part 6 Continental deformation and geomechanics: on the Mesozoic and Cenozoic intracontinental orogenesis of the Yanshan area, China, Shengqin Cui and Zhenhan Wu; structural control on concentration and dispersion of ore-forming elements, Ganguo Wu and Da Zhang; geomechanics and site investigation for underground works in Japan, Kazuo Hoshino.
