Table 2 Rheological properties of rocks from laboratory measurements (Rybacki et al. 2006)

From: Shear strain concentration mechanism in the lower crust below an intraplate strike-slip fault based on rheological laws of rocks

Anorthite logA \(({\mathrm{MPa^{-n-r}}} \upmu {{\rm m}}^{\mathrm{m}}\,{\mathrm{s}}^{-1})\) n \(({\mathrm{MPa^{-n-r}}} \upmu {{\rm m}}^{\mathrm{m}}\,{\mathrm{s}}^{-1})\) Q (kJ/mol) m r V \(({\mathrm{cm^{3}/mol}})\)
