Large-scale biaxial experiments on gypsum-gouge faults and a bare PMMA fault: Mechanical data and selected strain and image data

Loes Buijze
Geodetic observations and large-scale laboratory experiments show that seismic instability is preceded by slow slip within a finite nucleation zone. In laboratory experiments rupture nucleation is studied mostly using bare (rock) interfaces, whereas upper crustal faults are typically filled with gouge. To investigate effects of gouge on nucleation, we performed a biaxial shearing experiment on a 350 mm long saw-cut fault filled with gypsum gouge, at room temperature and σ2 = 0.3 - 5 MPa....

Hydrodynamic Mobility Reversal of Squirmers near Flat and Curved Surfaces

Joost de Graaf, Michael Kuron & Philipp Stärk
The data set "Hydrodynamic Mobility Reversal of Squirmers near Flat and Curved Surfaces" contains the outcome of a theoretical and simulation study into the motion of simple model hydrodynamic swimmers, squirmers, around a spherical obstacle. The main result of this study is that hydrodynamic mobility reversals are possible without the addition of a chemical gradients that help generate the self-propulsion. The robustness of this finding to the curvature of the obstacle with which the squirmer...

Social learning experiment

Eva Vriens
This experiment was designed to study the extent to which people use social learning (i.e., the incorporation of information/knowledge of others in their network) to solve complex problems. The experiment uses a multi-armed bandit problem, translated into a game in which participants have to learn which of four card decks has the most profitable cards. Participants get 20 tries to draw a card from 1 of the 4 card decks, so learning is possible through...

Frictional properties of simulated shale-coal fault gouges: Implications for induced seismicity in source rocks below Europe’s largest gas field

Jinfeng Liu, Luuk Bernd Hunfeld, André Rik Niemeijer & Christopher James Spiers
We report 21 frictional sliding experiments performed on simulated fault gouges prepared from shale-coal mixtures. Our aim was to investigate the effects of local coal seam smearing on the frictional properties and induced seismogenic potential of faults cutting the Upper Carboniferous source rocks underlying the Groningen gas reservoir (Netherlands). We used shale/siltstone core recovered from beneath the Groningen reservoir plus Polish bituminous coal of similar age and origin to coals locally present in the Groningen...

Reliability of pelvis measurements in beef cattle

Johannes C.M. Vernooij & Dietmar E. Holm
Reproducibility and repeatability of pelvis measurements taken by experienced and unexperienced observers in beef cattle. Horizontal and vertical measurements (cm) of the pelvis were taken in young cattle of 4 South African beef breeds. The observers have taken 2 measurements each from every animal. Also other animal characteristics were collected such as body length, heart girth, height at the withers , sex, pregnancy status and body condition score.

Intergranular clay films control inelastic deformation in the Groningen gas reservoir: Evidence from split-cylinder deformation tests

Ronald Pijnenburg, Berend Antonie Verberne, Suzanne Hangx & Christopher James Spiers
Production of oil and gas from sandstone reservoirs leads to small elastic and inelastic strains in the reservoir, which may induce surface subsidence and seismicity. While the elastic component is easily described, the inelastic component, and any rate-sensitivity thereof remain poorly understood in the relevant small strain range (≤ 1.0%). To address this, we performed a sequence of five stress/strain-cycling plus strain-marker-imaging experiments on a single split-cylinder sample (porosity 20.4%) of Slochteren sandstone from the...

Friction and compaction data of simulated fault gouges derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock of the Groningen gas field

Luuk Bernd Hunfeld
We investigated the rate-and-state frictional properties of simulated anhydrite-carbonate fault gouge derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock overlying the seismogenic Groningen gas reservoir in the NE Netherlands. Direct shear experiments were performed at in-situ conditions of 50-150 °C and 40 MPa effective normal stress, using sliding velocities of 0.1-10 µm/s. Reservoir pore fluid compositions were simulated using 4.4 Molar NaCl brine, as well as methane, air and brine/gas mixtures. Brine-saturated samples showed friction coefficients (µ)...
