3. Flow folds (Figure 12). These folds are produced at great depth and result from extreme flowage of rock beds, particularly in soft, incompetent rocks, like shale or limestone. B A Figure 10. Cross sections illustrating flexure folding. (A) Anticline. (B) Syncline. Figure 11. Cross sections illustrating shear folding. Heavy black line, xz, is a bedding plane. Inclined light lines are fractures. (A) Before displacement on fractures. (B) After displacement. (C) Because of friction, beds tend to parallel the fractures.

These folds result from differential shear along many fractures (cleavage), creating anticlinal and synclinal shapes without actual folding of individual beds. Typically, these folds occur at greater depth than those of flexural slip. 3. Flow folds (Figure 12).
