    • Effects of damage-zone thickness on fault displacement 

      Gudmundsson, Agust; Geyer, Adelina (11. Symposium "Tektonik, Struktur- und Kristallingeologie", 2006-03)
      When viewed as ideal elastic cracks, seismogenic faults are often modeled as decreases from the host rock to the boundary between the core and the damage zone. mode II or mode III cracks in semiinfinite elastic bodies or ...
    • Experimental study of the evolution of fault gouge in layered sand–clay sequences 

      Schmatz, Joyce; Vrolijk, Peter; Urai, Janos L.; Giese, Steffen; Ziegler, Martin; Zee, Wouter van der (11. Symposium "Tektonik, Struktur- und Kristallingeologie", 2006-03)
      This study focuses on clay smear processes during fault gouge evolution in sand-clay sequences at depths up to 2 km. A clay-rich fault gouge can dramatically lower the fault’s permeability, and prediction of this process ...
