|Finite element modeling of seismic faulting with a laboratary-derived rate and state dependent friciton law|
Hui-Lin Xing, Akitake Makinouchi
Earthquakes have been recognized as resulting from a stick-slip frictional instability along the faults between deformable rocks. This paper introduces the recent development of our research activity in the finite element analysis of the static or quasi-static deformable rocks in contact along the faults with a laboratory-derived rate and state dependent friction law.
