Table 1 Model configurations

From: Shear strain concentration mechanism in the lower crust below an intraplate strike-slip fault based on rheological laws of rocks

Model Crustal rheology Fault type Grain size
W1C Wet anorthite Intraplate strike-slip fault Constant (L = 500 µm)
D1C Dry anorthite Intraplate strike-slip fault Constant (L = 500 µm)
W30C Wet anorthite Interplate strike-slip fault Constant (L = 500 µm)
W1E Wet anorthite Intraplate strike-slip fault Equilibrium
D1E Dry anorthite Intraplate strike-slip fault Equilibrium
W30E Wet anorthite Interplate strike-slip fault Equilibrium
  1. Six model configurations were tested by this study. The rheological parameters for anorthite are summarized in Table 2. The nomenclature of the model configuration is as follows: The first letter denotes water content (D, dry; W, wet), and the last letter denotes grain size (C, constant; E, equilibrium). The number between two letters denotes the total relative velocity in mm/year
