On the Orientation of Fractures with Transpressional and Transtensional Wrenches in Pre-Existing Faults

Author: Shuping Chen ABSTRACT The orientation of fractures with transpressional and transtensional wrenches in pre-existing faults has not been quantitatively determined. Based on Coulomb failure criterion and Byerlee’s frictional sliding criterion, this paper has indicated quantitative geometric relationships between the … Continue reading
