Short summary
We concentrate on the stick-slip-like movement occurring under rate-independent friction due to the eigenoscillation of the fault faces and the associated wave propagation. Also, a simple mechanism of unusually high shear fracture or sliding zone propagation is considered. This is the P sonic propagation of sliding area over a fault based on the fact that the accumulation of elastic energy in the sliding plates can produce oscillations in the velocity of sliding (friction is constant).
