Fault Valving and Pore Pressure Evolution in Simulations of Earthquake Sequences and Aseismic Slip

15 May 2020 Zhu Weiqiang Allison Kali L. Dunham Eric M. Yang Yuyun

Fault-zone fluids control effective normal stress and fault strength. While most earthquake models assume a fixed pore fluid pressure distribution, geologists have documented fault valving behavior, that is, cyclic changes in pressure and unsteady fluid migration along faults... (read more)
