Stress Distribution During Cold Compression of Rocks and Mineral Aggregates Using Synchrotron-based X-Ray Diffraction Cecilia S.N. Cheung1,2, Donald J. Weidner1, Li Li1, Philip G. Meredith3, Haiyan Chen1, Matthew Whitaker1, Xianyin Chen4 1Mineral Physics Institute, Department of Geoscience, Stony Brook University, 2Geological Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 3Rock and Ice Physics Laboratory, Department of Earth Sciences, University College London, 4Department of Chemistry, Stony Brook University We report detailed procedures for compression experiments on rocks and mineral aggregates within a multi-anvil deformation apparatus coupled with synchrotron X-radiation. Such experiments allow quantification of the stress distribution within samples, that ultimately sheds light on compaction processes in geomaterials.
