Determination of orthotropic bone elastic constants using FEA and modal analysis.
Finite element models have been widely employed in an effort to quantify the stress and strain distribution around implanted prostheses and to explore the influence of these distributions on theirExpand

Thermal-mechanical behavior of oceanic transform faults: Implications for the spatial distribution of seismicity
[1] To investigate the spatial distribution of earthquakes along oceanic transform faults, we utilize a 3-D finite element model to calculate the mantle flow field and temperature structureExpand

Earthquake swarms on transform faults
SUMMARY Swarm-like earthquake sequences are commonly observed in a diverse range of geological settings including volcanic and geothermal regions as well as along transform plate boundaries. TheyExpand

Variations in earthquake rupture properties along the Gofar transform fault, East Pacific Rise
Mid-ocean ridge transform faults experience more foreshocks than continental faults, yet the mainshock rarely ruptures the entire fault. Analysis of seismic data from the Gofar transform fault at theExpand

Seismic velocity constraints on the material properties that control earthquake behavior at the Quebrada-Discovery-Gofar transform faults, East Pacific Rise
[1] Mid-ocean ridge transform faults (RTFs) vary strongly along strike in their ability to generate large earthquakes. This general observation suggests that local variations in material propertiesExpand

An Abrupt Transition in the Mechanical Response of the Upper Crust to Transpression Along the Queen Charlotte Fault
The Queen Charlotte Fault (QCF) is a major strike‐slip fault that forms the boundary between the Pacific and North American plates from 51° to 58° N. Near 53.2° N, the angle of oblique convergenceExpand

Source and progression of a submarine landslide and tsunami: The 1964 Great Alaska earthquake at Valdez
Like many subduction zone earthquakes, the deadliest aspects of the 1964 M = 9.2 Alaska earthquake were the tsunamis it caused. The worst of these were generated by local submarine landslides inducedExpand

Imaging along‐strike variations in mechanical properties of the Gofar transform fault, East Pacific Rise
A large part of global plate motion on mid-ocean ridge transform faults (RTFs) is not accommodated as major earthquakes. When large earthquakes do occur, they often repeat quasiperiodically. We focusExpand

Basement and Regional Structure Along Strike of the Queen Charlotte Fault in the Context of Modern and Historical Earthquake Ruptures
The Queen Charlotte fault (QCF) is a dextral transform system located offshore of southeastern Alaska and western Canada, accommodating ∼4.4  cm/yr of relative motion between the Pacific and NorthExpand

The tectonically controlled San Gabriel Channel–Lobe Transition Zone, Catalina Basin, Southern California Borderland
Abstract High-resolution geophysical data across the Catalina Basin, offshore southern California, USA, reveal a complex channel–lobe transition zone (CLTZ) and provide an opportunity to characterizeExpand
