Modelling of intra- and peryfault folds in Pre-Cambrian complexes on a base of the theory of noncoaxial progressive deformation

© O.B. Gintov, V.V. Gonchar

Models of evolution of structures of turnover and drag within fault vicinity zones are developed on a base of the conceptes of progressive inhomogeneous simple shear. First model presents development of the one-stage turnover tectonites as inclusions deformed in a shear zone. Second model depicts simultaneous formation of such inclusions and drag of old markers. Third model deals with drag fold.
