Carbonaceous materials are contained in fault zones in a variety of geological settings, but they received little attention even though they may affect mechanical properties of faults significantly. The aim of this thesis is to reveal natural occurrence of carbonaceous materials in faults through fieldwork and to evaluate their effects on fault mechanics by laboratory experiments. In particular, graphite, a form of carbonaceous materials, should receive attention because it is a well-known… CONTINUE READING
