Undulated Slip Surface

If the undulated surface is considered (on scale 1 to 10 m) - it is possible to account for slip surface waviness by angle ν:

where:

α

-

slip surface gradient

αi

-

gradient of the i-th fault of the slip surface

The waviness increases the tensile strength τ on the slip surface by Δτ:

where:

σn

-

normal stress acting in the direction normal to the slip surface

ν

-

waviness angle
