Dislocation Theory in Earthquake Modeling: Contributions of Roman Teisseyre
Roman Teisseyre was one of the pioneers of applying the dislocation theory in geophysics. The present book recollects his major publications of the years 1961−1990, the milestones in the consecutive stages of the development of the Theory of Earthquake Premonitory and Fracture Processes. The collection reproduced here, showing the evolution of the Author’s ideas, is sort of backup and supplement to monographic publications and gives the reader an easy insight into some top positions representing numerous papers scattered over various journals and books.
Nonstationary Flows of Viscous Fluids through Porous Elastic Media. Homogenization Method
Author(s): Bielski W.
Porous media found in the natural environment represent a good example of media with microstructure. Their pores contain different phases of liquids and gases filling them as well as the interfaces between the phases. This issue has been frequently discussed by soil physicists and chemists, chemical and petro engineers, seismologists and other researchers interested in geosciences.
Water Domain Structure and Effects of Water Content on Electric Properties of Rocks Studied in a Wide Frequency Range
Author(s): Rusiniak L.
Water is one of the most common substances, widespread on the Earth in different states of matter. It has an essential influence on many climatic and atmospheric phenomena. In the Earth's crust, water influences mechanical and electrical behaviour of various structures. The electric properties of moist porous rocks are very important in many branches of geophysics. The moist porous rock material is very interesting from physical point of view, as it is a solid dielectric with a liquid dipole dielectric in the pores, cracks and other structural defects. There are good prospects of practical use of the results of measurements of electric properties of such rocks in non-destructive testing and in the study of water inside various products and materials.
Interactive Dynamics of a Heterogeneous Seismic Source. A Model with the Slip-dependent Friction
Author(s): Senatorski P.
Earthquakes can be perceived from two different points of view. First, they can be identified with earth vibrations that cause buildings to sway, glass to ring, small objects to fall down, or, from time to time, much more disastrous phenomena in the case of large earthquakes. On the other hand, they can be defined by the physical processes that cause these vibrations, i.e., by slip movements along the tectonic faults. In this work, the second aspect of the earthquake related phenomena, i.e., physics of earthquake sources and earthquake generation mechanisms, is studied.
Proceedings of the XVI General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission, Strasbourg, August 29 - September 5, 1978. Symposia of Subcommissions
Editor(s): Teisseyre R.
Proceedings of the 16th General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission, Strasbourg, August 29 - September 5, 1978 contains the papers (or their abstracts only) which were presented at the meetings of subcommissions and working groups. The present volume also contains some papers which for technical reasons were not submitted on time for the preceding volumes of papers from Strasbourg. A few papers which were presented during the symposia in Strasbourg but were not mentioned in the announcement for the ESC meeting are also included.
