About this book

Discusses continuum mechanics in an exacting but accessible style, using examples of structural geology photography. The authors cover mathematics and modelling, and building a framework from which specific cases can be worked.

Media reviews
...offers an excellent conclusion to the series. Like its predecessors, it is thoughtfully conceived and carefully completed. ...a fine introduction to modern structural geology. SCIENCE, Vol 293, 31 August 2001 "Overall, Volume 3 provides many challenging examples and detailed insights into the structural deformation processes that will engage both the newcomer and the experienced practitioner in a fascinating journey of exploration. Above all, it is a book that promotes wider participation in quantitative modelling. The no-nonsense approach of this book will not only guide the uninitiated through the basic principles and assumptions that underlie such methods but, with careful application, should help to accelerate the development of physically realistic reconstructions of geological deformation." TECTONOPHYSICS "...Ramsay and Lisle have stuck to the recipe that made Volumes 1 and 2 so successful. Once again we are treated to a beautifully illustrated book, with numerous pictures and line drawings of natural structures. ...Ramsay and Lisle go to great lengths to demonstrate how mathematical analysis relates back to structures described in the field. ...the prose is elegant, succinct and straightforward. The book progresses logically and coherently forward through an introduction to heterogeneous stress." EPISODES "This volume continues a tradition for these volumes of excellent illustrations, a nice mix of mathematical analysis and real world examples and completely worked relevant examples. The inclusion of a CD-ROM of useful structural geology programs (and their source code in the text) is a bonus. I would recommend this volume to be purchased by all libraries and amongst those colleagues with an interest in continuum mechanical explanations of geological features." -THE AUSTRALIAN GEOLOGIST
