Analogue models made of two layers of loose sand separated by a thin layer of micro glass beads were shortened by a rigid emerging ramp dipping at either 30° or 45° and possessing a high, intermediate, or null surface friction. Shortening resulted in formation of closely spaced back thrusts in the sand layers. The dips of the back thrusts vary within a range of 30° depending on the ramp friction, and 7° depending on its dip. An increase in ramp friction, or, to a lesser extent, in ramp dip… CONTINUE READING
