Figure 6

Stress polygon concept in Bruchsal to constrain allowable stress ratios and related faulting regimes. (A) Possible range for horizontal stress components SHmax and Shmin (each normalized by Sv). (B) SHmax magnitudes accounting for Shmin from the leak-off tests LOT-2023 and LOT-2245 (SL). Gray shaded area indicates the range of possible stress states between a strike-slip and a radial extensional faulting regime.
