Yun-tai Chen

Yun-tai Chen, Chinese geophysicist (Xiamen, Fujian Province 10 August 1940 –

Authored about 200 scientific publications

Found that heterogeneities of both stress drop and cohesion are the main factors that control the growth, cessation, and healing of the crack and that the complexities in seismic radiation are caused by the complex healing process as well as complex rupture propagation

Obtained a closed form expression for the static displacement field in a half-space by the dislocation in a rectangular fault for the case of unequal Lamé constants

With S.G. Kim, Z.L. Wu & G.F. Panza. A mathematical theorem useful for the direct estimation of seismic source spectra. Bull. Seismol. Soc. America (1997)

Proposed a technique for determination of source parameters of small and moderate earthquakes and quality factor of transmitting medium

With L.S. Xu. A time domain inversion technique for the tempo-spatial distribution of slip on a finite fault plane with applications to recent large earthquakes in Tibetan Plateau. Geophys. J. Intl. 143(2):407-16, 2000

With C. Liu, Y. Zhang & L.S. Xu. A new technique for moment tensor inversion with applications to the 2008 Wenchuan M S 8.0 earthquake sequence (2008)

With Y. Zhang, W. Feng, D. Forrest et al. The 2009 L’Aquila M W6.3 earthquake: a new technique to locate the hypocenter in the joint inversion of earthquake rupture process (2012)
