Dear Pylith team,
Following an example on the Cubit forum (Webcutting error with nonplanar surfaces - Meshing - Coreform LLC, second message from ‘admin 1’), I built a mesh of a normal fault where the box is not cut in two parts by the fault (see attached file). The fault only reaches the surface of the box but no other surface. I used this mesh in Pylith (to compute surface displacements with prescribed slip) and it works. I remember reading somewhere on the Pylith website that the box had to be cut entirely in two parts by the fault. So I was just wondering if I was missing something. Is there any particular reason why the box has to be entirely cut in two by the fault ? I am asking because I am planning to add other fault segments in my meshing that are quite close to each other and it would be easier if the faults do not need to cut entirely the domain.
Thanks in advance for you reply
