Model and Animate Development of Regions with Multiple Faults
StructureSolver 2.0 represents a major advance in StructureSolver’s interactive structural modeling and analysis capabilities. For the first time, users can automatically link multiple quantitative structural models to investigate the development of structurally complex regions. This feature is unique to StructureSolver. Once a user has created two or more structurally consistent models, StructureSolver automatically determines the structural relationships between individual adjacent fault models, links the surfaces, and quantitatively animates their joint horizontal displacement history. As in all StructureSolver operations, diagnostics are automatically performed and displayed so that the user can interactively evaluate their linked fault system and revise the component models if necessary. Any of the linked model surfaces can be directly converted to horizons for use in interpretations, area-depth analysis, or restorations. As with all models in StructureSolver, the automatically calculated growth strata geometry can be manipulated by the user to determine the relative deformation sequence for the area of interest.
