Functional-Friction Networks: New Insights on the Laboratory Earthquakes

  title={Functional-Friction Networks: New Insights on the Laboratory Earthquakes},
  author={Hamed O. Ghaffari and B.D.Thompson and R. Paul Young},
We report some new applications of functional complex networks on acoustic emission waveforms from frictional interfaces. Our results show that laboratory faults undergo a sequence of generic phases as well as strengthening, weakening or fast-slip and slow-slip leading to healing. Also, using functional networks, we extend the dissipated energy due to acoustic emission signals in terms of short-term and long-term features of events. We show that the transition from regular to slow ruptures can… Expand

Solitonic State in Microscopic Dynamic Failures
The results show that formation and annihilation ofsolitons mediate the microscopic fast weakening phase, during which extreme acceleration and collision of solitons lead to non-Newtonian behavior and Lorentz contraction, i.e., shortening of sol itons’ characteristic length. Expand
Gas trap stability in the Zechstein Limestone from the Rudna Copper Mine (SW Poland)
A gas and crashed rock burst in 2009 in the Rudna Copper Mine was the motivation to re-investigate the dolomite succession of the first Permian cyclothem (Werra), which covers the ceiling section ofExpand
