Our experiments were designed to explore the transition process from stable slip to stick-slip and the corresponding AE characteristics with covariation of recurrence and shear stress drop during gouge friction of simulated fault with different-sized particles.
Due to similar observations of six AE sensors by critical discrimination, the frequency range of the Nano30 sensor is much larger than that of R15a sensor; therefore, the Nano30 sensor with the relatively large frequency range of 125-750 kHz on the upper forcing block was selected to analyze the AE characteristics during gouge slip and friction.

Kesselman decided to combine a fictional story of the executioners with the historical truth of the life of Olympe de Gouges.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of de Gouges's death, an appropriate time to afford her some delayed recognition.
