Rheology of Earth Materials :
Closing the gap between timescales in the laboratory and in the mantle

6-10 December 2022 - 2022 IUCr High-Pressure Workshop

Advanced High-Pressure Crystallography

Session 8. Rheology and elastic properties at high pressures

Elastic and rheological properties of materials are directly linked to their atomic structures through bond strength and defects. Understanding these properties at the atomic level is vital in physics, materials science, earth and planetary sciences, as well as industrial applications. This session invites contributions from both experimental and theoretical studies in these areas. Technical developments highlighting new state-of-the-art methodologies are also welcome.
