Abstract
The modeling research presented in this paper of an input-output geokinetic system can be applied to problems not only in earthquake research but also to problems in siloed missile systems. The finite element technique provides an effective methodology for exploring the detailed surface movements of the earth in response to ocean tidal loading. The finite element computer program utilized in this paper was especially designed for analyzing deformations and strains resulting from a system of loads applied to a structure. Relationships are explored between surface loads and fault zone tilt response as a function of fault zone shear strength, and distance of the fault from the load.
