Models for earthquake rupture propagation

Abstract:

The basic processes associated with earthquake rupture propagation are poorly understood. In particular the crack-tip problem is singular when considered in terms of a stress-intensity factor. We introduce the Barenblatt cohesive zone to remove this singularity and consider a uniformly propagating, mode III crack that bisects a strip. Downstream of the crack tip we consider both a stress-free condition and a viscous resistance on the crack surface. The technique of matched asymptotic expansio...
