... of 0.276 and clearly smaller than the values (0.6–0.85) of common minerals estimated by the empirical Byerlee's law. These results indicate that weak interlayer friction of phyllosilicates has a large effect on the low frictional strength of gouge layers in natural faults. Our methodology and results...

.... The inferred σ 1 makes a 70°−80° angle with the ∼070°-striking Castle Mountain fault, indicating that the fault slips at a lower shear stress than predicted by laboratory rock friction experiments if hydrostatic pore pressure exists in the fault (i.e., coefficient of friction ∼0.85, Byerlee's Law). The forearc...

... and induced, providing further support for Byerlee's Law. Whole-path Q estimates for P and S waves are determined using the multiple-empirical Green's function ( MEGF ) method of Hough (1997), whereby spectra from clusters of colocated events at a given station are inverted for a single attenuation parameter...

..., in that they do not exceed strength bounds for a fractured rock mass, as estimated from Byerlee's law. The nonlinear model predictions imply that if tectonic release is modeled elastically as the relaxation of the deviatoric part of the prestress into a spherical cavity, the appropriate cavity radius...

The gray band shows the plastic yield strength of olivine single crystals determined from indentation tests ( Evans and Goetze 1979 ). For comparison, a line showing
