    • Abstract

       

      Closed-form analytical expressions for the displacements and the stresses at any point of a two-phase medium consisting of a homogeneous, isotropic, perfectly elastic half-space in welded contact with a homogeneous, orthotropic, perfectly elastic half-space due to a dip-slip fault of finite width located at an arbitrary distance from the interface in the isotropic half-space are obtained. The Airy stress function approach is used to obtain the expressions for the stresses and the displacements. The case of a vertical dip-slip fault is considered in detail. The variations of the displacements with the distance from the fault and with depth have been shown graphically.
