As shown in Figure 17, the loading mechanisms of the compressional and torsional waves were set independently.
Hence, the bulk viscosity should not be neglected in the case of the compressional flow with large dilatation or compression deformation.
Under this overall compressional (or transpressional) tectonic regime in the Tarim block, particularly in the northern part where the deep well TS is located, these faults and associated fractures could have formed a complicated conduit network through which the hydrothermal fluids from depth could have readily migrated upwards and caused dissolution upon the host dolomites.
Besides, the Central Precordillera registered a Paleozoic compressional deformation event that resulted in folding and faulting of early Paleozoic sedimentary strata.
Using updated measurements of Pluto's diameter and density, Hammond's model revealed that a frozen ocean beneath the crust would have changed from conventional water ice to a more compact, crystallized structure known as "ice II." As the ice changed, the frozen ocean would have shrunk, creating an entirely different type of feature known as compressional fractures, which are not seen on Pluto's surface.
Rumailan, the first field to be found by Syrians in 1962, is a complex compressional structure on trend with Suwaidiyah to the east.
Warm air from California and offshore flow led to compressional heating, which caused Monday's temperature spike, said Mike Petrucelli, a weather service meteorologist in Medford.
You change the stress state of the surface ice from compressional to tensional, which promotes crack formation."
Seismic sources operate analogously to throwing stones in a pond, creating rippling waves (principally compressional and shear waves) that propagate within the Earth.
Gstalder and Raynal measured rock hardness directly from core samples and then from compressional wave velocities as an alternative method [1].
