Structural Geology Lab

Mac Pros in the digital deformation lab


Research and teaching lab


  • 6 8-core and 3 12-core CPU Mac Pros running Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux
  • Mac OS X geology software is installed; in addition, the Macs are fully integrated with the Subsurface Interpretation Lab, meaning that all applications in the Subsurface Interpretation Lab are available in this lab as well
  • ELE Compact 1000 compression machine, used for running stress-strain experiments on rocks

The Structural Geology Lab is perfect for intensive simulations of large deformations by running detailed discrete element simulations of fault zones, and for load and sandbox experiments for benchmarking computer simulations.
