Stratigraphic Modeling | Apply Fault

It is a tool used to apply fault or faults to a single selected surface. With this feature, you can apply multiple faults to the same surface at once. Before the fault application process, all fault data must be added under the faults section in the data catalog.

In order for faults to be applied to surfaces or stratigraphic models, they must be digitized on the surface at the highest elevation or the elevation values ​​of the fault corner points must represent the highest elevation during the reading process. 

In addition, as a second rule, the extension given by the extension amount of the fault plane must intersect the surfaces on which the fault will be applied.

MethodsIt enables the production of a new surface with the selected estimation method by using the lithology/interval and coordinates information of the surface to which a fault will be added and the fault plane elevation values ​​to be added to the surface. Detailed information about estimation methods can be found in the Model Definitions section. 
ExtendIt allows the fault plane to be extended outwards in a wedge shape in the same direction as the plane, by the entered value.
Show Fault PlaneIt enables the boundaries of the fault plane to be displayed by converting the intersection boundary of the fault and the surface and the amount of slip on the fault plane into area geometry. These boundaries are also elevation points to be used in the estimation process according to the selected estimation method.
Clean Fault SurfaceIt is the option that allows the triangles in the area where the fault plane is located to be cleared and a gap to be created on the surface, after applying a fault to the surface. This display method can also be preferred by the user.
Change the Fault DrawingAfter the apply fault process, if the selected fault cannot be applied to the surface, it can be applied by changing the drawing direction with the help of this feature.
FaultsThis is the area where the faults that want to be added to the surface are selected. Faults activated in this area are added to the selected surface on the graphic screen.

The surfaces to be faulted must have lithology/interval and coordinate information. When right-clicking on the Surfaces tab in the data catalog, Lithology/Interval and Coordinate information must be added to the selected surfaces with the "Add "Lithology/Interval" operation.
