Frictional weakening and slip complexity in earthquake faults

Abstract

Previous work has shown that velocity-weakening friction produces slip complexity in simple dynamical models of earthquake faults ( Carlson and Langer, 1989). Rere I show that a different type of dynamical instability, caused by slipweakening friction, also produces slip complexity. The deterministically chaotic slip complexity produced by slip-weakening… (More)
