Compressive basins show various geometries of growth structures. In this paper, we examine the effects of the rate and nature of synkinematic sedimentation by comparing analogue models and field examples. We performed different types of experiments in order to simulate various natural conditions, the parameters tested including the rate of synkinematic sedimentation and the presence of a potential décollement layer deposited during deformation. Modelling techniques are similar to those usually used for experiments on brittle-ductile systems made of sand and silicone putty.

To study the influence of the synkinematic sedimentation rate, we used sets of experiments with different velocity...
