Abstract

Field evidence shows that, contrary to common belief, sheet fractures and structures are due to compressive stress. A suite of minor forms including A-tents or pop-ups are of similar origin. This interpretation carries a range of implications for civil engineering and quarrying projects. The minor forms are also indicators of seismicity
