We undertook a parametric study, using a two-dimensional distinct element method, to investigate if there is a preferred geometry of intersecting faults that may favor the occurrence of intraplate earthquakes. This model subjects two and three vertical, intersecting faults within a block to a horizontal force across them, representing the maximum horizontal compression (SHmax). The main fault is oriented at an angle α with respect to SHmax, and β is the interior angle between the main fault and the intersecting fault. The third fault is oriented parallel to the main fault and is half its length....
