The current levels of erosion demonstrate that horizontal translation can be constrained to a minimum of 8 km of movement, but the brittle nature of the deformation textures in the rocks of the fault planes
indicate that all horizontal translation occurred under nonmetamorphic conditions.
The resistance to the sliding in the fault planes
follows the Navier-Coulomb law, it means that there is a cohesive and fractional resistance in the rock.
However, at the contact between this deformed sedimentary unit and the adjacent lava flow, well developed NNE-striking brittle sinistral fault planes
plastered with calcite slickenfibers can be observed (Fig.
Yet the Macquarie ridge also generates smaller quakes along dipping fault planes
The breccias are consistently found within 40-50 metres of the main fault plane
and appear to dip approximately 55-65 degrees to the northwest so that the core lengths intersected approximate true widths.
Fault outline generation - automatic calculation of horizon and fault plane
intersections for streamlining map generation
1 in Winkler County, Texas, that the well has reached 10,600 feet and directional tools are on bottom drilling at 20 degrees along the fault plane
By integrating 2D/3D model construction, visualization and analysis, ShapesProspector produces fast PC renderings of complex surfaces and volumes; accurate horizon construction, contouring and cross-sectioning; easy-to-use fault plane
construction and fault networking tools; and real-time updates between 2D and 3D views for accurate geometric modeling immediately in 3D.
The Hana-4 and Hana-5 wells were successfully drilled along the fault plane
defining the western edge of the reservoir.
