Block structure of carboniferous system rock strata

G.P. Lopukhov, M.V. Pavlenko, A.N. Salnikov

Currently, in rock strata modeling great attention is attached to its block structure, which is documented in Academician M.A. Sadovsky’s studies. Rock strata is understood as a system of blocks having the following characteristic feature: the system of blocks is a hierarchical selfsimilar structure. The block greatest to smallest size ratio ranges from 2 to 5. The authors’ analysis of the core material sampled from the interval belonging to the carboniferous system in the process of borehole 2035 drilling has proved the ratio narrower range of 3 to 3.08.
