This page serves as a receptacle for a selection of structural geology software used by the UW Structure Group

Shear Box 1.4.2 Simulates progressive shear on a box, displaying strain ellipse and material line rotation and deformation.

Stress v. Strain 1.4.1 Simulates progressive shear on a box, displaying axes of “stress” (assuming a viscous medium) and finite strain.

Strain Theory 1.2.5 Simulates progressive shear on a box, displaying strain ellipse, flow apophyses, infinitesimal strain axes, and finite strain axes.

3D Strain 1.2.1 Simulates three-dimensional progressive general shear on a box.

Flow Lines 1.6.1 Simulates progressive shear on a box, using flow lines to display the exact path of material points during deformation.

Rotating Clasts 1.3.2 Simulates rotation of elliptical clasts under progressive shear conditions according to either Jeffery or March model rotation.

Jeffery v. March 1.1.1 Simulates the rotation of elliptical clasts under conditions of progressive general shear, allowing for simultaneous comparison of Jeffery and March model rotation.

Shear Fabric 1.2.1 Simulates rock fabric formation under progressive shear by translating and rotating elliptical clasts.
