Some macroscopic methods of fabric analysis

Lisle, Richard John 1976. Some macroscopic methods of fabric analysis. Journal of Geology 84 (2) , pp. 225-235.

Full text not available from this repository.


Methods are described which permit the calculation of the orientation of rock fabrics using the orientations of the traces of the fabric on planxar outcrops. They assume that the total fabric has ellipsoidal geometry. They also permit the calculation of the angle V for the fabric ellipsoid, which is equivalent to the axial angle for the optical indicatrix ellipsoid. Several methods, which use different amounts and types of data, are described. Although here the methods are applied to tectonic fabrics, they are relevant to all fabrics where an overall ellipsoidal geometry can be assumed.
