Effects of shear heating and dilatancy on slip instability of a fluid-infiltrated fault with rate/state depen- dent friction


where the expression following the first equality is the force in the spring and that following the second is the frictional resistance to sliding of the block (both expressed for a block of unit area). The load point velocity vo is the product of the imposed rate of tectonic strain rate γ̇ in the crustal block and the characteristic length of the block… (More)
