Model setting of 2D earthquake cycle simulation. a Configuration of model plate interface and the schematic illustration of stable or unstable regions. Colors on the model plate interface reflect the assumed distribution of frictional parameters, (a – b)σeff: red and blue colors denote stable and unstable regions, respectively. The shallow gray segment denotes the steady sliding zone. b Depth profiles of frictional parameters used to simulate an earthquake cycle scenario
