About this book

Microstructures in rocks contain a wealth of information on the history of rock bodes, metamorphic and tectonic processes and the mechanical and rheological properties of the crust and mantle. The book deals with the numerical simulation of such microstructures in rocks. It starts with a general introduction of exisiting methods and techniques for optical and electron microscopic analysis and measurement of microstructure. The main part of the book contains a number of examples of numerical modelling of processes and microstructures in rocks, using the software package "ELLE". With the accompanying CD, readers can do these simulations themselves and run their own simulations.

From the reviews: "This book constitutes a detailed introduction to a simulation problem with special reference to earth sciences. In addition, it introduces the modeling package known as Elle that has been specifically designed by a community of scientists dealing with microdynamics of rock transformations to simulate grain scale processes. ! Without a doubt, the book can be recommended for researchers in the field of mathematical modeling of rock forming processes, teachers and advanced-level students of tectonics, petrology and geotechnical engineering who are interested in ! mathematical geology." (Yuri Gulbin, Mathematical Geosciences, Vol. 41, 2009)
