Short summary
The influence of fluid injection on tectonic fault sliding and generation of seismic events was studied in the paper by a multi-degree-of-freedom rate-and-state friction model with a two-parametric friction law. The considered system could exhibit different types of motion. The main seismic activity could appear directly after the start of fluid injection or in the post-injection phase (after some days or months). Such an influence of injection on seismicity is observed in the real cases.
