Dynamic fracture mechanics in the study of the earthquake rupturing process: theory and observation

Abstract:

Earthquake damage depends on the ground acceleration generated by it, with this ground acceleration being directly proportional to the changes in rupture speed as a fault propagates. This is the primary motivation for seismologists to study earthquake fracture dynamics. The theoretical possibility of supersonic rupture speeds for faults with finite cohesion and friction was demonstrated in the 1970s, the theoretical developments spurring the search for such observations for earthquake rupture...
