Earthquake nucleation with heterogeneous physical properties.

Ray, Sohom.


  • Seismological and geodetic studies permit an inference of fault's frictional properties (or normal stress) to be nonuniform. However, studies on slip instabilities and dynamic ruptures on faults often consider physical properties to be uniform, or nearly so. I examined how nonuniform physical properties, affects the dynamics of slip instabilities. I found that the evolution of slip is almost ... read more
