Short Note Dynamic Rupture Simulation of the 2008 Mw 7.9 Wenchuan Earthquake with Heterogeneous Initial Stress


The rupture process and tectonic surroundings of the 2008 Wenchuan, China, earthquake are both complex in a way that might be related to the heterogeneous stress field of the Longmen Shan region. In this study, we construct dynamic models with heterogeneous initial stress to reproduce a kinematic inversion result by Wen et al. (2012) and investigate the… (More)
