[SSS30-08] Systematic Understanding of Dynamic Earthquake Slip Process in the System without Fluid Flow
Keywords:theory, heat, fluid pressure, pore creation, nonlinear, interaction
First, we found that the steady state value of the normalized slip velocity is zero or unity over a whole range of Su. In addition, deceleration at the initial stage of the slip is required to attain the steady state value zero. In the case Su<1-v0*, we found analytically that temporal differentiation of slip velocity is always positive, which leads to the conclusion that only acceleration occurs (the steady state value unity is realized) during the slip.
In this case, thermal pressurization is predominant over the pore creation, so that high-speed slip and complete stress drop are observed. Moreover, temperature increase is kept below the fault rock melting point. We found that these natures describe slip for the ordinary earthquakes with GAP and the high-speed slip and without the fault rock melting, which is the same behavior as those of Su>1-v0* and G>0. It is also important here that, since the final porosity is less than the upper value, we can reproduce (i) non-negligible porosity generation, and (ii) temperature under the fault rock melting point, both of which have been seismologically fundamental requirements, as done in the case Su>1-v0*. The behavior in the system without the fluid flow is understood in a unified way for all values of Su.
