Project description

English EN

Quake study investigates fault system behaviour

In Europe, there are many earthquake-prone countries including Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. While earthquake prediction is a branch of the science of seismology, no scientist has ever been able to predict a major earthquake. The EU-funded TEAR project will provide key tools for fast, reliable, efficient and physics-based seismic hazard assessment for future use. It will study, for the first time, the full complexity of fault system behaviour to figure out how faults slip and cause earthquakes. It will work to develop and validate a generalised visco-elastoplastic framework. TEAR will use high-performing computing to renew our understanding of fault slip and fault zone evolution.
