The deformational phase D2, shearing, is recorded in the gneisses and the metadiorite is put in place the schistosity S2.
The microcracks, micropores, schistosity, and bedding in the ore rock are quickly closed under external load.
There is a 45-50[degrees] dip of crystallization schistosity in the rocks to the south and south-east.
In previous study, the SJ model has been successfully used to simulate the behavior of bedding planes, joints, foliations, and schistosity [30, 31].
The stratified structure of a rock mass is typically acquired during sedimentary deposition, and planar structures such as foliation or schistosity can also be produced by metamorphism.
The schistosity and boudenaged structure of quartz vein along these zones are the examples of such deformation.
D1 compressional structures are constituted by large, subvertical folds oriented N100/110E and associated with a schistosity (S1) parallel or transverse to the axial plane (Quesada et al., 1987).
These curves belong to six categories of hard joint surfaces (such as stratification, foliation, phyllite, schistosity, fault, and joint) with various sample lengths (such as 10 cm, 15 cm, 22 cm, 30 cm, 40 cm, 50 cm, 60 cm, 70 cm, 80 cm, 90 cm, and 100 cm).
