Numerical modeling using the distinct element method (DEM) and discontinuous deformation analysis (DDA) have been performed to give additional insights into the mechanisms of crustal deformation in various geological and tectonic terrains. It demonstrates consistency with the first style (Suppe, 1985), but its details, used in consortial property distribution of the Anschutz Ranch East field, also show structural elements not predictable by the first style and not included in the restoration. The image below shows generally where the fault, drawn in red, terminates. In the southern road cut, the forelimb steepens up-section (Figs. Evidence for this mechanism is found in the western border of the Lagunillas Basin (Fig. Figure 4.10. The overburden is 40 units thick and contains 10 marker layers of particles, all with the same properties, subjected to gravity. Figure 1. Structural map showing the subsurface extensional structures of the Al-Jazira plain (according to Fouad and Nasir, 2009). Consequently the folding appears quite brittle in nature as the fractured blocks became rotated into the shape of the fold. (1993), Schelle and Grünthal (1994), Holmberg et al. 4.10). Nature 350: 39–42. Under such circumstances, older sedimentary units may outcrop in the distal parts of the foreland basin (Figure 39). As slip increases the fault tip advances and fold grows larger. Thrust faults typically have low dip angles. Fault-propagation folds constitute an important trap style in fold and thrust belts. Extensive karstification took place along the depression, and ultimately many saltpans developed within the fault-bounded depression. Movement on faults can be a combination of dip-slip and strike-slip. In an effort to better understand the development of fault-propagation folding above rigid basement fault blocks, Finch et al. According to previous tectonic restorations (Martínez et al., 2016), these structures mainly deform paleostructural highs that separate the Mesozoic basins. Jones (1987) generalized the duplex concept by suggesting that both detachments persist and keep pace with the forward growth through the entire imbricate FTB. The recognition of the fault-propagation fold mechanism in glaciotectonic deformation is extremely important because resultant structures … Fault propagation folds form important hydrocarbon traps. One of the advantages of applying DEM to study tectonic processes and mechanisms is its ability to record the development of structures with large deformations, e.g., to observe the difference in model behavior between strong and weak sedimentary covers. Also notice the thickening of the strata in the synclinal hinge zone of the fold. A high-angle thrust fault is called a reverse fault. The nature of the stratigraphic sequence and the associated truncations reflect that the area was subject to repeated geological activity during the Mesozoic Era but became almost stable during most of the Paleogene–Neogene period. A nice seismic example is shown in Figure 1 - both the structure (the fold) and the causal fault can be clearly seen. 9), which is mostly identified along the eastern border of the Lautaro Basin and other major basement faults located in the La Totora Basin (Salazar et al., 2013). (1966), Dahlstrom (1969, 1970), Suppe (1983, 1985), and Shaw et al. 6.10 right). Each graben represents a simple symmetrical graben bounded by a pair of high-angle normal faults. The decollement folds are progressively converted to fault‐propagation folds and fault‐bend folds through development of fault ramps breaking across competent layers and are followed by propagation into fault flats within an upper incompetent layer. This thickening is even more pronounced as the overburden strata are made softer. In free folding, rock layers are free to exert their mechanical properties on the development and shape of the folded stack and thus layer-parallel strain dominantly … In stage (a) on the ascending part of the loading curve, acoustic emissions produced by dilatant microcracking (Scholz, 1968b), are uniformly distributed in the central region of the test specimen. The system dominates the western part of the area and consists of five major basins (from north to south): Tel-Hajar structures, Khleissia Graben, Tayarat North and South Grabens, and Anah Graben. Its west and southern areas are near the Huo 1 member and hydrocarbon generation center of the Shahezi Formation. Khleissia Graben is the second largest graben in the Al-Jazira plain; it is 130 km long and 5–10 km wide. As displacement continues the thrust tip starts to propagate along … The Tel-Hajar structure developed in the extreme northern part of the Al-Jazira area. It is the major and well-developed fault system with larger extension and displacements. The effect of increasing the dip of the fault up to 80° is illustrated in Fig. The other mechanism for basement-involved reverse faulting is related to the decapitation of previous basement normal faults (Fig. Fault-propagation and fault-bend fold. Fault-propagation folds develop in the hanging wall of low angle thrust faults and compensate part of the slip along the fault. The unit displacements are shown after (a) 3 330 000, (b) 660 000, (c) 858 000 and (d) 1 056 000 time steps and the total displacement is 26.4 units (Finch et al., 2003). The scarps formed 5 to 12 m-high straight escarpments extending for about 100 km, enclosing a 5 to 10 km-wide depression between (Sissakian and Abdul Jabbar, 2009). In the next section we will examine field data to see if this process occurs for natural faults. These anticlines are recognizable as fault-propagation folds because the fault that offsets the deepest blue layer does not cut upward through the entire section. The reverse fault is clear. Journal of Structural Geology 26: 339–376. This small graben has a smaller displacement compared with Anah Graben. Fault propagation folds, the subject of this paper, are asymmetrical fold pairs that develop The Denglouku Formation mudstone and Quan 1,2 member are effective caprocks. Vita-Finzi, C. 2000. Compare these to Inversion folds (see blog “Fault Reactivation: Inversion) which can be recognised by a thickened fault core. Their orientation peaks at about 30 ° from the fault on its compressional side (Figure 7(b)). Subsequent microscopic study of one of their experiments by Moore and Lockner (1995) showed that a brittle process zone about 40 mm wide had formed around the fault (Figure 7). Tayarat North and South Grabens are relatively smaller grabens. The purpose has been to obtain a better understanding of how different geological formations and the imposed loading and boundary conditions can influence rock structures. In the Swiss Molasse basin, the pinch out relates partially to post-Messinian inversion of Paleozoic grabens beneath the Jura Mountains, which accounts for a refolding of the intra-Triassic decollement, and differential topography between the Jura and the Molasse basin (Philippe, 1994; Roure et al., 1994). At each instant during propagation, slip goes to zero at the fault tip and is consumed in folding. Fault-propagation folding, a common folding mechanism in fold and thrust belts, occurs when a propagating thrust fault loses slip and terminates upsection by transferring its shortening to a fold developing at its tip. In summary, the DEM model proved to be of great help in studying tectonic processes and related geological structures. Notice also the disturbance in the velocity field close to the tip of the fault. 9). 6.28). Evolution of displacement and length for each model is shown in the lower schematic graphs. Note the abundant open fractures which were present before the folding - you can see these bed perpendicular fractures on the unfolded layers above the fold. Figure 12.1a illustrates some natural examples of basement faulting and related folding mechanisms in a sedimentary overburden and Fig. (2016). Fig. Fault propagation fold in deep water Niger Delta. Roeder, in Regional Geology and Tectonics: Principles of Geologic Analysis, 2012. 9), where rocks tend to be sheared. Each model was run for a total of more than one million time steps on a supercomputer, which took about 90 h of CPU time to complete. Diagram shows fault length, tip-zone secondary faulting (fault-trace maps) and along-strike displacement profiles at four times (T1–T4) for isolated propagating (left) and coherent constant-length (right) growth models. Displacement of the boundary faults decreases as the graben extends eastward. 12.1. 12.4. Kinematically, this mechanism depends on the competence between the basement and cover, the rheology of the basement rocks, the thickness of the cover and the physical conditions of deformation. The acidic volcanic rocks of the Ying 3 member are gas reservoirs controlled by lithology to the west and structure to the east. Field examples are recognised in northern Europe, formed by different ice advances in the Quaternary. (1966), Dahlstrom (1969, 1970), Suppe (1983, 1985), and Shaw et al. F. Martínez, ... MauricioParra , in Andean Tectonics, 2019. A reverse fault occurs primarily across lithological units whereas a thrust usually occurs withinor at a low angle to litho… This system, which is parallel to the Zagros mountain front, is well-developed in the eastern part of the Al-Jazira area. Dahlstrom (1969) abstracted and named this mechanism as a duplex, that is, as a pair of parallel flat-on-flat detachments, which are connected by a series of ramp segments and which are used successively for imbrication. In this case study, the DEM model has been applied to study a problem containing both brittle (faulting) and ductile (folding) deformation mechanisms. It is difficult to study fault propagation in the laboratory because in compression... Convergent margins and orogenic belts. This stratigraphic level is above the proposed de´collement for the Hudson Valley fold–thrust belt (the Rondout detachment; Marshak, 1986). Left, complete stress–strain curve for failure of granite. The zone of rigid translation at the hanging wall and the zero velocity above the footwall zone remain, while the transition zone has almost disappeared. These two models illustrate typical structures developed in fold and thrust belts. Fault-propagation folds. Particles are bounded until the separation between them reaches a defined breaking strain and the bond breaks. 6.29). Pure dip-slip faults can be normal (h/wall down) or reverse (h/wall up) Pure strike-slip faults can be dextral (right-lateral) or sinistral (left-lateral) Oblique-slip faults combine dip-slip and strike-slip components. Compare these to Inversion folds (see blog “Fault Reactivation: Inversion) … The model can catter The lower part of the sequence seems to be involved in normal faulting, whereas its upper part has been draped over the tip of the fault, forming a pronounced fault-propagation fold without visible faulting. Sketched practical examples of the first style include an early and unusually well- controlled example of a cascade of fault-bend folds (Fig. Dahlen, F. A., 1990, Critical taper model of fold-and-thrust belts and accretionary wedges. Models incorporating viscous relaxation, therefore, still require these mechanisms or the additional vertical or horizontal forces mentioned in the previous section to be able to fit the basin architecture. The sandbox model shown below developed nice fault-propagation folds during its deformation. Fault-propagation folding, a common folding mechanism in fold and thrust belts, occurs when a propagating thrust fault loses slip and terminates upsection by transferring its shortening to a fold developing at its tip. Annual Reviews Earth Planetary Science 18 : 55–99. Some of these faults have reached the surface to form two parallel ENE–WSE trending fault scarps. Based on their current geometries, previous works (Martínez et al., 2012) have considered that the geometry of the hanging wall blocks of these structures can be modeled assuming a p/s (propagation/slip) relation = 0, and an average of upward displacements of 10–15 m of the hanging wall blocks along the fault planes. The dip segments between fault bends are regionally and stratigraphically persistent. In these structures, propagating thrust fault loses slip upsection by transferring its shortening to a fold developing at its tip. However, because of its Late Mesozoic–Cenozoic stratigraphic and structural evolution and its relation to the main tectonic zones of the Iraqi territory, the Al-Jazira plain has been regarded by Fouad and Nasir (2009) as the NW extension of the Mesopotamia foredeep of the outer Arabian platform rather than a part of the inner platform, as proposed earlier by Body and Jassim (1987), Numan (1997), and Jassim and Goff (2006). 12.4a) and very strong overburden (Fig. These anticlines are recognizable as fault-propagation folds because the fault that offsets the deepest blue layer does not cut upward through the entire section. Lockner et al. It is difficult to study fault propagation in the laboratory because in compression tests an instability usually occurs just at the beginning of the falling part of the stress–strain curve, so that data cannot be taken beyond that point. 6.3), horsetail faults, wing cracks or tail cracks (Chapter 2), occur where slip on a primary fault surface locally produces stress concentrations at fault tips which are relieved by distributed strains in the adjacent rock volume (Chinnery, 1996). (a) Model with very weak sedimentary overburden; (b) model with strong overburden with velocity vectors calculated between time steps of 132 000 and 165 000; (c) model with strong overburden with velocity vectors calculated between time steps of 660 000 and 693 000. The interplay of faulting and folding during the evolution of the Zagros deformation belt. From Moore DE and Lockner DA (1995) The role of microcracking in shear-fracture propagation in granite. However, it is less extensive, shorter, and narrower, with lesser displacements compared with the ENE–WSE trending system. Figure 6.29. The linear concentration of acoustic emissions in (b) indicates the nucleation of a fault, which subsequently propagates through the sample amid a cloud of acoustic emissions. Three structure cross-sections showing an arbitrary collection of duplex structures from the SCRM (Canada) and from the Northern Alps (Austria, Germany). The geometry of fault propagation folds is related to the underlying reverse fault - often having longer length to width ratios than pure buckle folds - as the length of the fault controls the fold (Sattarzadeh et al, 2000). Keywords Kuqa Depression, Deep Tight Sandstone, Fault-Propagation Fold, How to cite this paper: Feng, J.W. Schematic diagram illustrating two potential fault-growth models. Roberts, G. P. and Michetti, A. M., 2004, Spatial and temporal variations in growth rates along active normal fault systems: an example from The Lazio–Abruzzo Apennines, central Italy. They form above the tips of reverse faults in compressional settings such as the Zagros Mountains and in the Caspian Sea. The causal reverse fault is much smaller (with smaller throws) than the one in Figure 1. Under this mechanism, deformation is especially concentrated within a triangular deformation zone that widens upward (Fig. Some low-dip thrust faults terminate up-section and are capped by buckle folds, to be offset later by the growing fault. The model was used to study the influence of the dip of the basement fault and the strength of the sedimentary overburden on the geometry of the folds generated by block movements in the basement and the rate of fault propagation. 12.1b shows a physical clay model of a soft overburden formed by extensional rigid basement fault displacement. Fault-propagation folds are common structures where sedimentary rocks overlay basement rocks in sedimentary basins and other areas. (eds) Forced Folds and Fractures. Antiformal fault bends serve to nucleate forward wedge growth by toe addition. Its eastern Shahezi member and Ying 2 member deep sag are the favorable hydrocarbon generation centers with favorable hydrocarbon source rocks. Fundamentals of Discrete Element Methods for Rock Engineering, Saltzer (1993), Dupin et al. Dietrich. Progressive thrusting and … The continuing displacement is accommodated by formation of an asymmetric anticline-syncline fold pair. (3) The l D 101 well is a structural gas reservoir with volcanic rock reservoir. Between the zone of translation and the zone of zero displacement, there is a zone of transition that dips antithetically at about 25° to the main fault. and Gu, S. Cloetingh, ... L. Matenco, in Treatise on Geophysics (Second Edition), 2015. By increasing or decreasing the dip angle of the fault, the zone of deformation remains broadly triangular. 2b and 3). Finch et al. Fault propagation folds form important hydrocarbon traps. (1993), Schelle and Grünthal (1994), developed a 2D discrete element model of sedimentary cover deformation in response to basement thrust faulting. (2003) made a comparison of velocity vectors resulting from different cover strengths for identical horizontal unit displacements. The displacement of the upward moving (hanging wall) block was given a fixed displacement of 0.000025 units at each iteration step. Usually, the movement along major faults deforms the basement in these sectors, and fault slip is consumed by folding within the thin volcanic and sedimentary layers of the synrift and postrift deposits of both basins (Martínez et al., 2012). Further refinements of the Dahlstrom-Suppe model generated a large variety of duplex structures, their shapes, their kinematics, and their nomenclature (Boyer and Elliott, 1982; Crane and Mull, 1987; McClay, 1992). The Al-Jazira plain is bounded by the Euphrates River valley in the south and Al-Tharthar valley in the east (Fig. In the Alberta Basin, the entire lithosphere, in both the foreland and the hinterland, has been uplifted (Hardebol et al., 2013). They have a very distinctive expression, often presenting an upward‐widening monocline, which is subsequently breached by an underlying, propagating fault. (4) A structural-lithologic gas reservoir is the Xushen 1 well gas reservoir. Wathiq Abdulnaby, in Developments in Structural Geology and Tectonics, 2019. To show that fault propagation folds occur at different scales I’ve included a small outcrop example from dolomites in Marsden Bay, NE England (Figure 2). The system consists of grabens and normal faults. It creates a fourth fold type. Geological Society, London Special Publications, 169, 187 - 196. As a form of fault propagation fold during upward propagation of an extensional fault in basement into an overlying cover sequence. 12.3. Figure 7. Andrew Nicol, ... Tom Manzocchi, in Understanding Faults, 2020. Fault-propagation folds form at the tip of a thrust fault where propagation along the decollement has ceased but displacement on the thrust behind the fault tip is continuing. For both models, there is a rigid body translation above the hanging wall of the fault and almost zero displacement above the footwall block. One particular category of fault-related folds, so-called forced folds, have been studied by Finch et al. (2003), this style is globally accepted and perceived to be almost universally present in compressed belts. (2003) developed a 2D discrete element model of sedimentary cover deformation in response to basement thrust faulting. Folding is not observed at or below the Kalkberg–New Scotland contact (Fig. (b) Orientation of cracks as a function of angle from the rock cylinder and fault. The results of such modeling are often used in combination with data from geological mapping and geophysical investigations to interpret geological structures and measured stresses and displacements. Dip segments of the antiformal bend are numerical remnants of the first or of subsequent generations of fault bends. The photograph below shows a fault-bend fold from the Eohimalayan Fold and Thrust belt developed in Jurassic Kyoto Limestone, Spiti Valley, NW Himalaya, India (photograph by Gerhard Wiesmayr, Vienna). Figure 6.28. Diagram from Nicol et al. Thick‐skinned thrust is produced by initiating a decollement fault within the metamorphic basement. Important point: Faults are highly ambiguous features. A new imbricate thrust slice, or horse, is inserted between the emplaced and bent thrust sheet and the remaining undeformed foreland. - The over-all simulated results match well with core observation and FMI results both in the whole geometry and fracture distribution. Near the eastern termination of Anah Graben, a small graben branches from the main one. This situation is usually governed by some conditions; for example, previous high-angle normal faults are especially prone to be decapitated during contractional deformation, especially when the contractional stress field is nearly perpendicular to the normal faults. Strain is brittle, non-pervasive, and involving bed-parallel flexural slip. The fault creates another structure (e.g., a fold or horst) that in turn forms the main trap. Extensional fault‐propagation folds are now recognised as being an important part of basin structure and development. The challenges ahead for the study of fault structures through physical analogue modelling entail bridging time and length-scales. 12.4b). Two main mechanisms of basement-involved contractional deformation are recognizable; the first is related to trishear fault propagation folding (Erslev, 1991; Fig. Developed by Rich (1934), Bally et al. Available seismic data revealed a subsurface fault associated with the structure. These extensional structures are divided into main trends: ENE–WSW and NW–SE (Fig. Fault branch-lines and tip lines are often characterised by elevated densities of small-scale faulting and fracturing within fault zones or fault damage zones, and can provide indirect information about fault propagation (McGrath and Davison, 1995; Kim et al., 2000; Perrin et al., 2015; Nicol et al., 2016). The upper part of the pre-rift sequence is not involved by faulting but appears to be draped over the tips of the boundary faults to form a pair of extensional fault-propagation folds. Post-Suppean numerical criteria are being recognized on modern Common-Depth-Point (CDP) or multi-channel 2D seismic data and interpreted directly on the seismic data (Shaw et al., 2003). Antiformal structures involving imbricate series, traditionally named “folded-fault structures” (Hume, 1957), are named “duplexes.”. Folds do not tighten beyond locking position, and they are of the parallel, not the similar, geometry (Donath and Parker, 1964; Ramsay and Huber, 1983–1987). (1997) made observations of displacement-distance … Fault … For many faults however, such secondary faulting is restricted to the region surrounding the present fault tip (McGrath and Davison, 1995; Kim et al., 2000; Perrin et al., 2015; Nicol et al., 2016) (Fig. Nevertheless, there is no evidence that these basin bounding faults had experienced structural inversion within the Al-Jazira area, although they did in other nearby provinces such as Sammara and Tikret. Other researchers have sought to charac-terize displacement profiles for natural structures. The model of fault-propagation folding above the rigid basement presented reproduces many of the features observed in analogue physical modeling and reported from field studies. Fig. The effect of layer-parallel shear on the shapes of fault-propagation folds is explored for the two theories of fault-propagation folding of Suppe & Medwedeff (1990): (1) constant layer thickness and (2) variable front-limb layer thickness; the range of possible fold shapes is significantly expanded relative to the case of no shear. The function of the FAG is to carry out basic scientific research on all aspects of faults and other types of fracture and to apply the results to practical problems, principally in the fields of hydrocarbon and minerals exploration and production. Fault-propagation folding, a common folding mechanism in fold and thrust belts, occurs when a propagating thrust fault loses slip and terminates upsection by transferring its shortening to a fold developing at its tip. It was assumed that in the basement there is a discrete, pre-existing fault of 45° of dip angle that reactivates and displaces the basement into two blocks. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. The basement is assumed to be rigid and the particles lying on the basement are fixed, as are particles at the vertical boundaries of the model. Area-balanced theoretical models that relate the footwall cutoff angle (θ) to the fold interlimb half-angles (γ* and γ) show that open folds (high γ* and γ) are … Fault propagation fold in dolomite, Marsden Bay, NE England. Fault propagation folds or tip-line folds are caused when displacement occurs on an existing fault without further propagation. Folding above a rigid basement fault block (Finch et al., 2003): (a) natural examples of anticline structures from Willow Creek and Rangely in the USA; (b) physical model in clay of extensional folding above block faulting in the basement. The first style records seriated imbrications along thrust faults branching off the detachment. The third one, from the north flank of the Alps in Germany, is inferred from high-standard geological surface mapping and from the known position of the FTB base. In addition, there is the gas reservoir of the bedrock weathering crust and conglomerate lithologic gas reservoir of the Huoshiling Formation. The observed fault-tip geometries can be explained if faults initially propagate rapidly with secondary tip structures only forming when the fault reaches its final length (Fig. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. The displacement gradually decreases NW as it dies out in that direction. All nested antiformal units contain similar stratigraphically defined fault bends and ramp segments. Also, there are no striations on the individual blocks. The scale of 40 units, together with the initial configuration of the model with the moving fault in the basement, is presented in Fig. fold type with large amplitude and highdensity factures in the top. Anah Graben is the largest graben in the Al-Jazira plain; it is 250 km long and 7–15 km wide. Viscous relaxation during basin development induces basin narrowing and deepening, similar to the result of an EET reduction through time. The crack density increases exponentially as the fault is approached (Figure 7(a)). Finch et al. Trishear is a forward kinematic model in which deformation occurs in a triangular zone in front of the propagating fault tip, with the geometry of this zone, and the geometry and growth of the resulting fold, related to several … A shift toward the orogen of the pinch out of sedimentary units is observed in the previously mentioned foreland basins and also in the Alberta Basin (Beaumont, 1981) and the Swiss Molasse basin (Schlunegger et al., 1997). Fault-propagation folds are common structures where... Crust and Lithosphere Dynamics. McConnell et al. Fault-propagation folding, a common folding mechanism in fold and thrust belts, occurs when a propagating thrust fault loses slip and terminates upsection by transferring its shortening to a fold developing at its tip. examining existing fault-propagation-folding mod-els. Two of the duplexes are well controlled in addition to high-standard geological surface mapping. As slip accumulates on the underlying normal fault, the geometry and size of the fold changes. Suppe (1983, 1985) quantified the kinematics of ramps, flats, fault bends, and duplexes as a complex of bed-parallel and bed-discordant dislocations, rotations, and simple shear. The application of a viscoelastic model to the Guadalquivir Basin (Garcia-Castellanos et al., 2002) and the Tertiary Piedmont Basin (Carrapa and Garcia-Castellanos, 2005) shows that viscous basin narrowing may exceed the velocity of wedge motion, inducing a retreat of the subsiding area toward the orogen.
