Abstract

A double layer Green's tensor for linear elasticity in half space is computed. Traction free conditions on the surface are imposed making this Green's tensor relevant in geophysics for modeling displacements caused by slips on faults. Past attempts at computing related Green's tensors are discussed. Applications to computing displacement fields by integration over fault regions or by use of asymptotic estimates are presented.
