I have modified step13 in hex8 (slip-weakening fault friction in a quasistatic problem) to build a spontaneous rupture model for my own fault. I have encountered an error regarding the tractions on the fault. The fault is planar with a fine mesh. Here’s what pylith is returning:
“terminating with uncaught exception of type std::runtime_error: WARNING! Fault opening with nonzero traction., v_fault: 1735, opening: 9.60479e-07, normal traction: -1.05722e-05”
I tried attaching the json file but I get an error saying “new users cannot upload attachments”. I can provide it via email if that would help solve the problem.
