Brittle-ductile transition, instability modes of crustal rock and the estimation of shallow great earthquake depth

This paper mainly discusses the possible depth of shallow source great earthquakes on the basis of a series of rock mechanical experiments at high temperature and pressure. By comparing characteristics of strength, deformation and instability modes of tested crustal rocks, we show that sudden instab...
