Dynamics of Faulting and Fault Plane Solution
Explanation of immediate faulting or mechanism of earthquake is one of the most fascinating and significant problems in seismology. The physical process of elastic strain accumulation and the triggering mechanism are the basics to understand the earthquake kinematics. The term focal mechanism or fault-plane solution conventionally refers to fault orientation, the displacement and stress release patterns and the dynamic process of seismic wave generation.
