On the relation between fault strength and frictional stability

Abstract

INTRODUCTION A common assumption in many studies of fault and earthquake mechanics is that earthquakes nucleate on mechanically strong portions of faults (asperities), whereas aseismic slip occurs on weak patches (e. However, theoretical treatments and experimental results have repeatedly demonstrated that earthquake source parameters and stick-slip… (More)
