Abstract Finite displacement gradients measured at fault tips appear to contradict the predictions of the post-yield fracture mechanics (PYFM) model for fault tip propagation proposed by Cowie, P. A. and Scholz, C. H. (1992) Journal of Structural Geology , 14, 1133–1148. The results of a high resolution survey of a 3.6 km long normal fault in SE Utah are presented as evidence that the contradiction is real and not simply due to problems of limited resolution. A theoretical explanation for… CONTINUE READING
