Handbook of Physical Properties of Rocks, Vol 2



Special Sale Price:




The handbook is interdisciplinary in content and approach. A purpose is to provide data for persons in geology, geophysics, geochemistry, petrophysics materials science, or geotechnical engineering, who might be expert in one special topic but who seek information on materials and properties in another topic. This might be for purposes of evaluation, estimates, modelling, prospecting, assessment of hazards, subsurface character, prediction of properties, beginning new projects, and so on.

This volume includes:
• Magnetic properties of minerals and rocks — Magnetic and crystalline properties of magnetic minerals. Types of remanent magnetizations. Magnetic properties of rocks: susceptibility, coercive field, Curie temperature, anisotropy, saturation magnetization. Variation with chemical composition, grain size and shape, temperature, and pressure.
• Engineering properties of rock — factors and tests relating to rock appraisal, characterization, and assessment of properties such as strength, hardness, elastic constants, and deformation. Engineering properties, including the effects of pore water pressure
• Seismic velocities — Compressional and shear wave velocities for rocks, minerals, marine sediments and water, aggregates and glasses, the Earth’s crust and upper mantle (continental and oceanic), glaciers and permafrost. Laboratory and in situ measurements. Variation of velocity with degree of fluid saturation, pressure, and temperature
