From: Fully dynamic earthquake sequence simulation of a fault in a viscoelastic medium using a spectral boundary integral equation method: does interseismic stress relaxation promote aseismic transients?

Spatiotemporal distribution of \(V\) in elastic cases with different \(R_{c}^{\text{EL}} /R\) values. a \(R_{c}^{\text{EL}} /R = 0.4\). The system produces repeating earthquakes approximately every 7.15 years (\(= 3.38 t_{\text{load}}\)). b \(R_{c}^{\text{EL}} /R = 1.5\). \(V_{ \text{max} }\) is smaller than \(0.1\) m/s. Repeating AT occur around the patch. c \(R_{c}^{\text{EL}} /R = 1.5\). Variation in \(V\) cannot be recognized in the color scale adopted. The steady-state solution is stable
