I have some questions. I am sorry if this is a basic question. I would like to ask whether it is possible to simulate 2 earthquakes event in a shorter time (for example: following the example in 3d subduction step04). After the first earthquake, the second earthquake happens several years later. If it is possible, can we say that the second earthquake will be affected by the stress from the first earthquake from this simulation? And if we can do that, is it also possible to do the simulation if the fault from the first earthquake overlaps the fault from the second earthquake? I attach the model below:
The purple patch refers to the 1st earthquake fault patch. The yellow patch refers to the 2nd earthquake fault patch. And the green refers to the overlap fault patch which is actually the part of the first EQ but also the second EQ.
I tried to do the simulation using both faults but I got an error for the second fault patch that says:
Ambiguous fault surface. Cell 1174454 has all of its vertices on the fault
I have tried to run the simulation for each fault patch but it works fine.
Thank you in advance.
