DEFORMATIONS OF A FREE BOUNDARY CAUSED BY AN INTERNAL FAULTL. N. Volynets and O. D. Voevoda
A perturbation method is used to solve the static two-dimensional problem of a homogeneous, isotropic elastic half-space containing an internal fault and having a nonplanar free surface. The solution for boundary displacements is valid if the maximum amplitude of surface relief is small relative to the distance between the fault and the surface. The results shows that relief influences surface displacements caused by the internal fault.
