|Abstract||The problem of static deformation of a homogeneous, orthotropic elastic uniform half-space due to non-uniform slip along a vertical strike-slip fault of infinite length and finite width has been studied. Closed-form analytical expressions of displacements and stresses for different slip profiles – parabolic, linear, elliptic, and cubic are obtained. The results obtained here are the generalization of the results for an isotropic medium (Singh et al., 1994) in the sense that medium of the present work is orthotropic which is more realistic than isotropic and results for an isotropic case can be derived from our results. The variations of the horizontal displacements and stresses with distance from the fault due to various slip-profiles at the surface have been studied to examine the effect of anisotropy on the deformation. Numerically, it has been found that for parabolic, linear, and elliptic slip profiles, the surface displacements in magnitude for isotropic elastic medium are greater than that for an orthotropic elastic medium while in case of cubic slip, the surface displacements in magnitude for orthotropic elastic medium is greater than that for the isotropic medium.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
