Computer Animations of Basic Structural Processes

Richard Allmendinger, Dept. of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Cornell University

This page has several animated cross sections which illustrate common structural models. The animations illustrate the development of fault bend folds, duplexes, fault propagation folds, and normal faults.
