  • In this study experiments of increasing complexity have been conducted to provide a data base for validating features of the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian Grid for Research Applications (ALEGRA) code over a broad range of strain rates with overlapping diagnostics that encompass multiple responses. This range encompasses strain rates characteristic of shock-wave propagation (10 7/s) and those chameteristics of structural response (10 2/s). The tests matrix consists of two experimental series; the first being a simple system test with diagnostics that capture features relevant to both the high strain-rate hydrodynamic response and the low strain-rate structural response of the target. Themore » second series of experiments increased the complexity of tests with the addition of foam to the original simple series. The input conditions are extremely well defined. Velocity interferometers are used to record the high strain-rate response, while the low strain-rate data were collected using strain, carbon and PVDF gauges.« less
  • Economically important and hydrothermally formed kaolin deposits are often found within rift lithologic units, formed as a result of interaction of physical and geochemical processes in the extensional environment. The kaolin deposits of Balikesir--Duvertepe, Turkey and Kline Mountain, Sierra County, New Mexico, studied herein, are examples of this type. The Balikesir--Duvertepe district has been known as the most productive kaolin district in Turkey. Total reserves are estimated at 15 million metric tons. Located in the active Simav Graben produced by the subduction of the African Plate under the Aegean region, the kaolin deposits occur irregularly and variably in quality asmore » a result of hydrothermal alteration of Neogene tuffs. The Kline Mountain kaolin deposit was formed as a result of advanced argillic alteration on the southeastern edge of the Mogollon--Datil volcanic field, which is related to the extensional environment of Basin and Range province and the Rio Grande rift. Its reserve is reported as 200 million metric tons of altered tuffs. The two deposits show striking similarities: extensional related rock units, intense in situ hydrothermal alteration, mineral content, seismic activity, alunite contamination, chemical composition, and intense silicification. The deposits also display some differences: regional climate, the intensity of hydrothermal alteration and the elapsed time causing relatively complete replacement in the Turkish deposit compared to that in NM. The Balikesir--Duvertepe district has been the center of kaolin marketing for use chiefly in ceramic, paper, and white cement, while the Kline Mountain kaolin had been exploited primarily for paper and ceramic tile as a coating; and in the oil industry as a filler and absorbent material.« less
