Much recent work in structural geology has been conducted to understand the forms of fold structures and their mode of origin. Most of this work has transpired without appeal to the principles and practice of solid mechanics. Instead, fold forms have been hypothesized to arise via motions that can be expressed by simple geometric relation. However, this approach is incapable of realizing any material under physically realistic boundary conditions.
