The direction of fracture initiation
The preferential orientation for the initiation or extension of a crack is the one which gives the maximum strain energy reduction for a given crack length. This criterion is based on the concept of maximum energy release ...
A new approach to slant stack processing: An X-window (OSF/motif) project
A new definition for slant stack and inversion has been formulated. The different p ranges with different frequencies in the forward slant stack provide accurate reconstruction of the original data. The computing time is ...
Three dimensional localised slant stacks and their application to the analysis of synthetic reverse vertical seismic profiles
Three-dimensional slant stacks simulate the response of an elastic medium for both an incident (ray parameter q) and a scattered (ray parameter p) plane wave and are implemented by following a slant stack of common shot ...
Finite element modeling of thrust faulting
Finite Element modeling of thrust faulting shows that the faults will propagate upward at very low angles from the leading edge of a regional horizontal decollement surface located at various depths in a homogeneous block ...
