EllipAxes | R Documentation |

Function uses the octahedral shear strain and Lode parameter of a desired strain ellipsoid and returns the normalized axial lengths X Y and Z.

EllipAxes(es, nu)

`es` |
Octahedral shear strain. Values must be positive. |

`nu` |
Lode parameter. Values must be between -1 and 1. |

A numeric vector of length three with values returned in descending order (i.e. X, Y, and Z)

Not used in RockFab scripts but can be useful for other endeavors.

See for example: Ramsay, J. and M. Huber (1993). The techniques of modern structural geology.

es <- runif(min = 0, max = 3, n = 1) nu <- runif(min = -1, max = 1, n = 1) EllipAxes(es = es, nu = nu)
