【Abstract】

<正>The standard model of fault mechanics predicts that normal faults can only form at an angle larger than 45°,assuming the maximum compressive stress is vertical based on internal friction of rocks.These high angle normal faults will rotate down to 30°during continuous activity.This implies that faults that dip less than
