FAULT-PROPAGATION FOLDS ABOVE THRUSTS WITH CONSTANT DIP

Previous models of fault-propagation folds have been extended to include the case where folding initiates above a thrust ramp of constant dip. The model may be useful in analyses of fold-thrust structures in thin- and thick-skinned compressional terrains. It may be most applicable to fault-propagation folds that develop as a fault propagates from a thick, massive, brittle unit into a thinly layered, anisotropic unit. 1990.
