Abstract

Based on the studied features of propagation of seismic waves in a rock mass with a long structural fault, the authors have found the relationships between the seismic wave attenuation and weakening by the fault, the physic-mechanical properties of the fault filler, the fault thickness and the wave incidence angle. It is shown that relative displacements of the fault edges occur due to the difference in the wave parameters in front of and behind the faulting. The obtained data are compared with the “inertia model” calculations and the experimental results.
