Abstract

Recent experiments conducted on natural rocks subjected to different mechanical loading conditions have shown energy emissions in the form of neutrons and anomalous chemical changes. In the present study, a numerical model is used to simulate the nuclear products according to the fission interpretation. Specifically, the reactions were simulated by means of the Lattice Model of the atomic nucleous, assuming nucleons ordered in an antiferromagnetic face-centered-cubic (fcc) array. The simulations indicate that small and middle-sized nuclei can be fractured along weakly-bound planes of the lattice structure. It is argued that the simulations provide theoretical support to the experimentally-observed reactions and, moreover, that the probabilities calculated for various low-energy fissions can be used to explain the stepwise time changes in the element abundances of the Earth’s crust, which has evolved from basaltic to sialic composition over geological time.
