Mechanical data from laboratory shear failure experiments of fluid saturated Westerly granite (NERC Grant NE/S000852/1)

Data recorded during triaxial rock deformation experiments of Westerly granite in the presence of pressurised pore fluids (water). Data consists of mechanical data (load, displacement, confining...

Mechanical properties of saw-cut Westerly Granite during injection from a borehole in a laboratory sample (NERC grant NE/K009656/1)

This dataset is used and fully described/interpreted in the paper: Passelegue, F. X., N. Brantut, T. M. Mitchell, Fault reactivation by fluid injection: Controls from stress state and injection...

Data (ultrasonic, mechanical) and microstructures of shear failure in Lanhelin granite under upper crustal conditions (NERC Grant NE/M004716/1)

Data has been recorded during triaxial rock deformation experiments where Lanhelin granite samples were subjected to dynamic and half-controlled shear failure. The data consists of mechanical data...
