Persistent rupture terminations at a restraining bend from slip rates on the eastern Altyn Tagh fault

Abstract:

Restraining double-bends along strike-slip faults inhibit or permit throughgoing ruptures depending on bend angle, length, and prior rupture history. Modeling predicts that for mature strike-slip faults in a regional stress regime characterized by simple shear, a restraining bend of >18° and >4 km length impedes propagating rupture. Indeed, natural evidence shows that the most recent rupture(s) of the Xorkoli section (90°–93°E) of the eastern Altyn Tagh fault (ATF) ended at large restra...
