a Fault slip velocity (v) and b shear stress on the bilateral symmetry line in the lower crust for model W1E. \(\tau _{s}\) is the second deviatoric stress invariant; \(\tau _{yx}\) and \(\tau _{yz}\) are the yx and yz components of shear stress, respectively; and the straight broken line is based on Byerlee’s law. The depth of the BDT is shown by black arrows
