ABSTRACT
The article relates to the rheological properties of the salt with respect to halokinesis mainly in terms of microstructures. Phenomena are considered in terms of a non-Newtonian fluid, taking into account anomalies for small scales. Experiment on reviewing the movements that have a direct correlation with the deformation (strain) and stress. In the study, the maximum observed values were measured: the incremental displacement vector and finite displacement vector. These indicators together with the deformations can give us full information about the stress of the rock mass. Results of studies in relation to the larger scale could provide consistent information on the salt layer rheology and resistance or susceptibility to deformation of the underlying layers of the above. This would be important information during the construction of mines (for example: oil rig, pithead, mineshaft), drift mining and strip mining.
