Fracture Sets

A fracture set is an array of parallel or sub-parallel structure elements or structure zones of the same nature. Occurrence in sets is a common property of each fracture type. Here, each will be discussed separately in the corresponding links below since each fracture type has different geometric, statistical, and mechanical characteristics.

Types of Fracture Sets:
Joint Sets Pressure Solution Seam Sets Deformation Band Sets Fault Sets
