Numerical modelling of the growth of polygonal fault systems

Abstract:

Despite over three-decades of active research and wide debate in the published literature, the mechanisms that govern the growth of polygonal faults are poorly understood. Here we investigate the growth of polygonal faults using a suite of geomechanical finite element forward models that couple dynamic fault propagation, sedimentation, and the mechanical compaction of unconsolidated granular sediment. We undertook a suite of numerical model simulations to explore the relationships between ...
