...Bruce A. Bolt; Walter C. Marion abstract A differential transformer has been used as a displacementmeter across a crack in a culvert under the Memorial Stadium, UC Berkeley. The crack is believed to be the result of progressive right-lateral slippage in recent years along the Hayward fault which...

...A. Pitts Abstract The recent landslipping in the Lyme Regis area has, as Mr Conway indicates, related to reactivation of reconstituted and ‘brecciated’ Lias (Lias Head) and Upper Greensand (Cretaceous Head) (Conway, this issue). This is exemplified by the current slippage of East Cliff...

..., Borrego Mountain, and Imperial Valley earthquakes. Those measurements may have begun too late to resolve power-law behavior at early times. If current logarithmic behavior of the Superstition Hills fault persists, right-lateral slippage will approach 90 cm 10 yr after the rupture. Changes in the along...

... to the bridge span. The San Andreas fault passes beneath the bridge, near its western end (Figs. 37 – 39 ). An older version of the bridge had been continually offset by fault creep. The current bridge is a rebuilt version of the former, with the reconstruction only on the columns and supports beneath...

...Ali Afsharpoor; Farzam Javadpour; Jinqiao Wu; Lucy T. Ko; Quansheng Liang Abstract The pore geometry and slip conditions are two principal characteristics of liquid flow in shale noncircular nanopores. We have considered the pore shape and liquid slippage on the pore interior wall in pore-network...

.... Although history records no large earthquakes resulting from slippage along at least the principal segment of the fault in China, youthful landforms and disruptions of young sedimentary rocks indicate that it has generated large earthquakes during the Pleistocene and Holocene epochs. The historic...

...W. L. Chenoweth ABSTRACT Slippage in demand, increasing costs, and low spot market prices continued to influence the uranium industry during 1982. The supply of uranium exceeds the current demand and, as a result, exploration for uranium declined in the United States for the fourth straight year...

.... Rapid burial in the deltas preserved stream-transported organic matter and related nutrients. The sediments also were enriched by abundant marine organic matter concentrated in the delta area by prevailing winds and ocean currents. Abundant raw materials and reducing conditions necessary...

... to fracture stimulations, causing the water to follow the contrast instead of breaking through it, thus preventing effective stimulation. In addition to facilitating ineffective fracture propagation, bedding plane slippage can have a deleterious effect on the vertical well bore including, in several cases...

... field. We demonstrate that the combination of these three factors induces fault slippage and gas leakage along sections of the previously sealing reservoir-bounding fault. We argue that similar pore-pressure triggering of fault slip in the crust may occur because of the accumulation of gas columns...

Whitten and Claire: Resurveys over monumented points established near the winery also yield a rate of slippage or creep along the fault line of one-half inch per year...

... touches them. Large shear slippage and slip length happen in this scenario because fluid invasion weakens the BPs. In all of the scenarios, different senses of shear could occur along the BPs and a rupture typically propagates bilaterally from the initiation point on the BPs. We use a dynamic FEM...

Of the key factors that influence the propensity for fault slippage—pore pressure, orientation of the stress tensors, and frictional coefficient orientation of the fault plane—only the last factor can be assessed for its contribution...

Orogenic movements were not needed to form structural traps, as these were produced by large-scale slippage, slumping, and salt movement within the delta complex. All the elements in this closed system worked together to form the present oil and gas fields. Cumulative...
