ME-615 / 2 credits

Teacher(s): Lecampion Brice Tanguy Alphonse, Momeni Seyyedmaalek

Language: English

Remark: A project will be given half-way through the semester - in a team of 2/3 students. It is expected that the students will have to code their solutions. The project delivery will therefore be a git rep.

Summary

This course presents the classical and new approaches required to study the source mechanisms of earthquakes, combining theory and observations in a unified methodology, with a key focus on the mechanics governing fault ruptures highlighting novel developments in the field.
