Geological Non-Uniform Strike-Slip Fault Model to Study Crustal Deformation in Monoclinic Elastic Medium with Width-Depth Ratio (WDR) of the Fault

Dinesh Kumar Madan, Poonam Arya, N.R. Garg


The fault-width and fault-depth of the geological fault are the important parameters for the study of earthquakes. The width and depth of the fault influence the deformation field remarkably. The geometry of the fault plays a vital role in the study of crustal deformation. In this paper, a strike-slip dislocation model with exponential slip situated in a monoclinic elastic media is considered to study the effect of the width-depth ratio (WDR) on the static field. Both the uniform monoclinic semi-infinite elastic medium and two perfectly bonded semi-infinite anisotropic elastic media are considered. Graphically, for different values of W_D (WDR), the variations of displacement with horizontal distance from the fault have been depicted
