Constant-thickness fault-propagation folding with shear
- Andreas Plesch
Exploration of Fault Propagation Folding after Suppe & Medwedeff (1990) with optional shear
Feel free to move points A, f, e, and D which define the fold shape. It is also possible to move point H to change the amount of shear applied during folding. After each modification make sure to move point c until green points L and a' overlap exactly. The resulting configuration is then a bed length balanced FPF. The difference between unfolded bed length plus shear and folded bed length should then be 0. You can use point C to change the thickness of the folded unit. The plot shows curves of constant Psi for no shear FPF. The points on the plot track the current geometry of the construction.
