Models of Earthquake Faults with Long-Range Stress Transfer
May/June 2000 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 34-41
Great earthquakes strike without warning and are capable of causing significant destruction. The recent earthquakes in Izmit, Turkey (August 17, 1999) and Taiwan (September 20, 1999) are the latest of many poignant examples. As a result, seismologists, and more recently computational and condensed-matter physicists, have made extensive use of computer modeling to investigate the physics of earthquakes. Here, the authors describe a simple cellular automaton model that explores the possible relationship between Gutenberg-Richter scaling and critical phenomena.
