Abstract

In this work, we implement discrete element method for simulation of fault zone formation due to the tectonic deformations of the Earth crust. Discrete element simulation provides us with the valuable information on the deformations distribution in the vicinity of the fault, which can be recomputed into the petrophysical parameters of the core. The final model is the geological model with a spatial distribution of the densities and seismic waves velocities which are used for seismic modelling.
