Classification of folds on the basis of orientation of axial plane (Mains Paper -1)

Explanation

Classification of folds

  • Symmetrical folds

    Two limbs dip at the same angel but in opposite directions. In this case the axial plane is vertical and it passes through the crest or trough

  • Asymmetrical folds

    Here the limbs dip at unequal angles in opposite directions. In this case the axial plane is inclined and it not necessarily passes through

Describe unconformities and their types, and give the various criteria to distinguish them from faults.

Explanation

    • Introduction

      When the sedimentary rock beds deposit without any interruptions they are called as conformable. If there are any interruptions in sedimentation then they are called as unconformities.

    • Unconformity

      • Major breaks in sedimentation are called as unconformities. An unconformity is an old erosion surface, which separates younger

Essay Question▾

Describe in Detail

How are stress and strain related to each other? Explain the stress – strain curves in terms of brittle, ductile and viscous materials. (Paper-1)

Explanation

  • Stresses applied to a rock mass can be resolved into three mutually perpendicular directions. These directions are called as “axes of stress” and their magnitude is expresses as greatest, intermediate and least. When the magnitude of stress for each axis is equal, the stresses are said to be hydrostatic. Under such stresses, the volume of rock
