Fig. 10

Slip tendency Ts with respect to r = SH/Sv and λ = Pp/Sv for the fault geometry fixed at a dip angle of δ = 10° and α = 40°, where α is the angle between SH and the slip. The friction coefficient μ is set to be 0.6. The colder and warmer colors correspond to lower and higher values of Ts, respectively. Red indicates μ ≥ 0.6 (at which slip will occur)
