Previous studies have shown that [8, 9] adsorption/desorption will cause the bulk strain of coal matrix, and it can be calculated combined with the generalized Hooke's law:
where v is the Poisson's ratio of drainage, G is the shear modulus (Pa), and [[epsilon].sub.s] is the matrix bulk strain caused by coal adsorption/desorption; the experimental results show that the relationship between [[epsilon].sub.s] and p meets the Langmuir type curve [8, 9]:
This strategy would then allow the accurate determination of the bulk strain of the rock matrix.
Figure 6 shows the variation trends of rock bulk strain, confining stress, and temperature with time during the testing.
In order to ensure that the effective strain is not rougher compared with true strain fields, the first-order form is adopted to estimate the bulk strain and the second-order form to estimate deviator strain invariants as follows:
lineations related to layer-parallel slip during [F.sub.2] fold generation remain constant implying the changing geometry is a consequence of changing bulk strain rather than fold interference.
