Viscous anisotropy of textured olivine aggregates, Part 2: Micromechanical model

Abstract:

The significant viscous anisotropy that results from crystallographic alignment (texture) of olivine grains in deformed upper-mantle rocks strongly influences a large variety of geodynamic processes. Our ability to explore the effects of anisotropic viscosity in simulations of these processes requires a mechanical model that can predict the magnitude of anisotropy and its evolution. Unfortunately, existing models of olivine textural evolution and viscous anisotropy are calibrated for r...
