The exact shape of deformed pebbles

Lisle, Richard John 1981. The exact shape of deformed pebbles. Journal of Structural Geology 3 (2) , p. 189. 10.1016/0191-8141(81)90014-6

The shape and internal structure of deformed pebbles are compared with theoretical predictions about the deformation of a viscous circular or dliptical inclusion in a matrix of lower viscosity (Eshelby 1957, Ghosh & Sengupta 1973, Bilby et al. 1975). A geologically important prediction supported by the finite element calculations of Shimamoto (1975) is that the finite strain within the pebble is homogeneous and remains so during continued deformation. The deformed inclusion retains an elliptical shape.
