Folds, Dip and Strike

Soil Mechanics courses tend to do a cursory treatment of engineering geology, and mine is no exception. This is due to time and curriculum limitations. This is a nice presentation on this subject, describing the various kinds of folds and how they relate to the strike and dip on geologic maps.

I also have a fold, dip and strike handout which you can download here.
