An Inexpensive Device for Modelling Strike-Slip and Oblique-Slip Fault Zones.
Larter, Richard C. L.; Allison, Iain
Journal of Geological Education, v31 n3 p200-05 May 1983
Describes construction/use of a device to simulate structures produced in fault zones of dominantly strike-dip motion. Apparatus modifications allow simulation of transtension and transpression as well as pure strike-slip fault motion. Illustrates formation of several structures using the apparatus, comparing them with natural examples. Includes construction diagrams and materials needed. (JN)
