Modeling of Earthquake Rupture Process
By analyzing observational data of various earthquakes ranging from huge earthquakes to minor ones, I work to clarify dynamic rupture process of earthquakes and structural heterogeneity around seismic sources, and estimate friction and fracture conditions that control rupture process. In order to investigate scaling and energy efficiency of earthquakes, I conduct simulations on fracture growth process using multi-scale heterogeneity.
