The permeability and frictional strength of clay-bearing fault gouge : implications for earthquake nucleation and propagation
Daniel Faulkner

Faults in many different tectonic settings contain a significant proportion of clay. Clays typically have frictional strength that is lower than predicted by Byerlee’s rule, and have been proposed as a means to allow slip on ’weak’ faults. M...
