Abstract The paper introduces a model of a two-dimensional strike-slip fault in a laterally inhomogeneous medium, i.e., in an elastic half-space which is divided by two vertical interfaces into three adjoining parts of different rigidity. On the basis of the elasticity theory of dislocation, formulas are derived for the displacement, strain and stress fields. They are applied to the case of a medium with a low-rigidity zone of the width H at the centre of which a vertical fault is introduced… CONTINUE READING
