concepts from chapter 8
  These exercises explore concepts from Chapter 8 including intuitive notions of elastic behavior, computation of elastic strains given a stress state, the elastic solution for the edge dislocation, interpretation of laboratory rock mechanical data on elastic properties, and classic boundary value problems illustrating elastic heterogeneity and anisotropy.

mechanics of dike intrusion at Ship Rock
  This exercise explores models of rock deformation during the emplacement of dikes in the magma plumbing systems of volcanoes. Dikes provide conduits for flow of magma through the brittle parts of Earth's crust, and they feed fissure eruptions on many volcanoes. Mechanical models enable on to deduce the elastic properties of rock at the kilometer scale from measurements in the field of dike thickness and length.
