Crystal fabric evolution in lava flows: Results from numerical simulations

Abstract:

The analysis of the preferred orientation of crystals (crystal fabric) in magmatic rocks has become a widely used technique for the reconstruction of the flow history. However, little is known about the evolution of the fabric during flow. Here, numerical simulations are used to study the fabric evolution of low-concentration, laminar magmatic flows (e.g. lava flows). The fabric evolution of (a) particle populations with a specified shape (cube, tablet, prism, and transitional shape) and (b) ...
