The hypothesis called fault-bend folding (Suppe, 1983), first applied by Rich (1934) to the Cumberland overthrust block in the Appalachian fold and thrust belt, has been proposed as a means to quantitative geometric and arithmetic analysis of anticlinal structures in thin-skinned fold and thrust belts. In a surfeit of articles by enthusiastic proponents of the fault-bend fold model, this hypothesis is now being extended to cover other compressional and transpressional domains where vertically and laterally persistent folds and steeply dipping faults dominate the structural style. An example is the Shaw et al. paper in the May 1994 AAPG...
