Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Stress
  • Geometry

Terry E. Tullis focuses on Slip, Mineralogy, Shear, Geotechnical engineering and Creep. His work carried out in the field of Slip brings together such families of science as Seismology, Surface finish, Geometry and Interfacial bonding. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Seismology, concentrating on Crust and frequently concerns with Active fault and San andreas fault.

His Mineralogy research incorporates themes from Quartz, Stress relaxation, Seismic slip, Runge–Kutta methods and Slowness. His research links Fault with Geotechnical engineering. His Creep research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transform fault, Tectonics, Metamorphic rock, Fault mechanics and Extrapolation.

His most cited work include:

  • Friction falls towards zero in quartz rock as slip velocity approaches seismic rates (418 citations)
  • Euclidean and fractal models for the description of rock surface roughness (288 citations)
  • Roughness of natural fault surfaces (285 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Slip, Geotechnical engineering, Seismology, Mineralogy and Composite material. Terry E. Tullis combines subjects such as Creep, Fault, Geometry and Shear stress with his study of Slip. In his study, Surface finish is strongly linked to Surface roughness, which falls under the umbrella field of Geometry.

His research integrates issues of Shear and Plasticity in his study of Geotechnical engineering. His study looks at the relationship between Mineralogy and topics such as Mica, which overlap with Cleavage and Biotite. His study in the field of Quartz and Lubrication also crosses realms of Anisotropy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Slip (36.89%)
  • Geotechnical engineering (25.24%)
  • Seismology (23.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2020)?

  • Seismology (23.30%)
  • Slip (36.89%)
  • Geotechnical engineering (25.24%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Terry E. Tullis mainly investigates Seismology, Slip, Geotechnical engineering, Composite material and Flash. In general Seismology, his work in San andreas fault and Earthquake simulation is often linked to Covariance and Fault model linking many areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Talc, Plate tectonics, Lithosphere, Induced seismicity and Extrapolation as well as Slip.

His Geotechnical engineering research includes elements of Tectonophysics, Shear zone, Mantle, Deformation and Microstructure. His Deformation research incorporates elements of Mining engineering, Mineralogy and Brittleness. His work on Lubrication, Silica gel, Crystal twinning and Young's modulus as part of general Composite material study is frequently connected to Orientation, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Flash heating leads to low frictional strength of crustal rocks at earthquake slip rates (182 citations)
  • Frictional ageing from interfacial bonding and the origins of rate and state friction (152 citations)
  • Experimental Rock Deformation Techniques (97 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Composite material
  • Geometry
  • Stress

His primary areas of investigation include Slip, Seismology, Deformation, Composite material and Mineralogy. Terry E. Tullis performs multidisciplinary studies into Slip and Atomic force microscopy in his work. His work in the fields of Earthquake hazard overlaps with other areas such as Probability distribution, Covariance and Poison control.

His Deformation study combines topics in areas such as Brittleness and Geotechnical engineering. His Crystal twinning, Young's modulus and Quartz study in the realm of Composite material connects with subjects such as Orientation and Elastic energy. He has researched Mineralogy in several fields, including Talc, Fault gouge, Scanning electron microscope, Plate tectonics and Lithosphere.
