Stress interactions and seismicity of non-planar faults
James Dieterich


Slip on fault with fractal roughness is modeled to explore the effects of geometric complexity on earthquake nucleation, foreshocks, and aftershocks. Nucleation processes and seismicity in this model employ laboratory-based rate- and state-dependent fault constitutive properties.
