651-1180-00LResearch Seminar Structural Geology and Tectonics Information 0 KP1SN. Mancktelow, J.‑P. Burg, M. Frehner
KurzbeschreibungA seminar series with both invited speakers from both inside and outside the ETH.
LernzielThe seminar series provides an opportunity to convey the latest research results to students and staff.
InhaltInformal seminars with both internal and external speakers on current topics in Structural Geology, Tectonics and Rock Physics. The current program is available at: http://www.geology.ethz.ch/sgt/seminar/sgt_seminar.htm
651-3321-00LErdwissenschaftliches Kartenpraktikum I
Nur für ERDW BSc, Regl. 2010 und BSc Erdsystemwissenschaften UZH, d.h. Studierende im dritten Semester oder höher.
2 KP2PM. Frehner
KurzbeschreibungEinführung in das Lesen und Konstruieren von einfachen geologischen Karten.
Konstruktion von geologischen Profilen.
Einführung in die Lambert'sche Projektion und Schmidt'sches Netz (Stereoplots).

Dieses Praktikum lebt in erster Linie von Übungen, die die Studierenden unter Anleitung selbst lösen.
LernzielVerbesserung des geologisch relevanten dreidimensionalen Vorstellungs- und Darstellungsvermögens.

Fähigkeit geologische Karten zu lesen und interpretieren, sowie geologische Profile zu zeichnen.

Handhabung des Schmidt'schen Netzes üben, damit später eigene Felddaten dargestellt werden können.
InhaltStrukturlinien, Symbole
wahre und scheinbare Mächtigkeiten von geologischen Schichten
wahrer und scheinbarer Einfallswinkel
V-Regel
Dreipunkteprobleme
Diskordanzen
Verwerfungen
Einführung in die Lambert'sche Projektion
Falten
Magmatische Strukturen
SkriptAufgabenstellungen und Anleitungen werden abgegeben und sind auf Moodle erhältlich.
LiteraturSemesterliteratur ist in der ERDW-Bibliothek erhältlich.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesDieser Kurs ist zwar nicht Vorraussetzung, jedoch extrem hilfreich für den Terrainkurs II.
651-4003-00LNumerical Modelling of Rock Deformation3 KP2GM. Frehner
KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to the programming software Matlab.
Learning and understanding the continuum mechanics equations describing rock deformation.
Mathematical equations describing rock rheology: elasticity + viscosity.
Introduction to the finite-element method for modeling rock deformation in 2D.
A small applied project-work at the end of the semester will be tailored to the student's interest.
LernzielAt the end of this course, the students should be able to
- Use Matlab for their future needs (e.g., for their MSc Thesis)
- Understand the fundamental concept of the finite-element method
- Apply the finite-element method to successfully work on a small project tailored to the student's interests.

In addition, innovative methods will be applied to mark the performance in the course, which includes self-evaluation and peer-evaluation among the students. Therefore, some soft-skills will be required and trained as well, such as
- honest self-evaluation and self-grading
- providing honest feedback to a colleague in a tone that is acceptable
- receiving feedback from a colleague without taking criticism personal
- learning the procedure of scientific peer-evaluation
InhaltIntroduction to Matlab
Continuum mechanics equations necessary to describe rock deformation
Rheological equations: elasticity + viscous materials
Introduction to the finite-element method (in 1D)
Numerical integration + isoparametric elements
Going to 2D finite elements
Finite-element method for 2D elasticity
Stress calculation + visualization
Finite-element method for 2D viscous materials
Heterogeneous media
Final project-based work tailored to the student's interest.

A substantial part of the lecture will take place in the computer-lab, where numerical finite element codes will be applied. The used software is Matlab. Students may bring their own laptop with a pre-installed copy of Matlab.
SkriptThe script is very diverse and ranges from PowerPoint-based pdf-files, to self-study tutorials. Also, the more theoretical and mathematical aspects will be explained on the black board without a proper script.

All lecture-presentations, as well as the numerical codes, will be made available to the students online.
