SUMMARY Mechanical eiects left by a model earthquake on its fault plane, in the post-seismic phase, are investigated employing the 'displacement discontinuity method'. Simple crack models, characterized by the release of a constant, unidirectional shear traction are investigated ¢rst. Both slip componentsparallel and normal to the traction directionare found to be non-vanishing and to depend on fault depth, dip, aspect ratio and fault plane geometry. The rake of the slip vector is similarly… CONTINUE READING
