...) technologies were employed to figure out the mechanical characteristic of tight sandstones. Nanoindentation results show that the average Young modulus of quartz is 72.78 GPa in tight sandstones. We found that nanoindentation needs more methods like SEM and EDS to separate the modulus of phases in tight...

... < 600 °C. When the temperature is around 400 °C, the negative Poisson's ratio effect is particularly significant. When the axial load is less than 37 MPa, the strain analysis shows that the quartz in granite shrinks radially, which means the negative Poisson's ratio effect. The change of quartz content...

In this study, stress corrosion cracking of the pre-cracked crystalline quartz is considered using a reactive molecular dynamics simulation. The results show that water has a strong influence on subcritical crack growth...
